You do not need to be a member to enter and spend time in a Southwark Library. Our libraries are all free and accessible spaces that are open to anyone, regardless of where they live or where they were born. We encourage you to join the library as a full member so that you can borrow items and use our online services. This requires proof of your address, which can be temporary or shared accommodation, or your home address if you are a visitor from another country.
