We are now using a new online library catalogue system (see link below). Existing library users have been sent personal login details. New users should make sure they are members of Sense and then contact to obtain library login details.

To search for items from the library, use the Sense online library catalogue.

Users can request items automatically via the new online system. Requests will then be processed and sent out by post or you can arrange to collect them from the library in person. Please email in advance to let us know when.  We will aim to send out requested items within 48 hours where possible.

Library items are sent to borrowers free of charge. But it is the responsibility of the borrower to pay the  return postage, ensuring the items are returned in good condition by the due date given when taken out.

Borrowed items should be returned to:

Sense Library
101 Pentonville Road
N1 9LG

The usual loan period is six weeks. 

We don’t charge for late returns, but if borrowed items are persistently overdue the borrower may lose the right to use our library.

If you’d like more information or would like to visit, please contact our Information and Advice service.
