If you need more help choosing what to borrow, want to be shown how to use the carrier you’d like to try out, or don’t know where to start; we’re always able to make suitable personalised suggestions for you if you come along to any of our advice sessions or workshops.

The minimum hire period is 2 weeks, with hire costs from £10-£15. Deposits are not charged in advance at Forest Hill or Lewisham but, you must have a debit/credit card to hire & your card will be charged the replacement value of the carrier if it is damaged/lost/not returned.
If hiring from Tooting hire costs are £5-£15 depending on the value of the carrier borrowed. You’ll also need to leave a deposit of £25-150 per carrier borrowed to cover the replacement value of the carrier. We can take deposits by cash, credit/debit Card or Paypal payment; deposits are returned in full once the Library has received the carrier and instructions back in good order.
