Northwood Library events and activities

While extensive building surveys are carried out at Northwood Library (Oaklands Gate), the following events and activities have been temporarily relocated to this library.

Visitor parking vouchers

The council now operates a self-serve account, where applicants can apply for and manage their parking permits online. 

Paper visitor parking vouchers (for zones NWH) are available at this library until stock runs out.

Paper visitor parking vouchers for zones N, N1, N2 will also be available at this library, while Northwood Library is closed (and until stock runs out).

Full details about parking permits, including our self-serve online account and paper visitor vouchers, can be found on our Parking permits web page.

Tovertafel (magic tables)

Northwood Hills Library has a magic table, where people living with dementia and other disabilities can enjoy a series of 'light' interactive games. 

Adults and children with special needs are welcome to come and discover the magic tables and enjoy them with their families or carers. Organisations are also welcome to make bookings.

Please contact the library to book a session during opening hours.
