Reserving items

Items that are available within Ealing Libraries or other London Libraries Consortium borough members can be reserved for free by library staff or customers using the online catalogue – users can select which library to collect the items from and have the option of being notified via email.

If the item is not available within Ealing Libraries or our LLC partners, items may be borrowable from other public library authorities nationwide; there will be a small charge for this service.*

We can also search for specialist titles and journal items and borrow items from the British Library; there will be a charge for this service.*

Ealing based Choral societies can also reserve music scores that are not available from the Ealing Libraries collection; there is a charge for this service.*

* See fees and charges for a full list of reservation charges and other applicable Ealing Libraries fees.
