Luton Central Library

In the heart of the Luton Town Centre, our Central Library is located on St George’s Square.

Here we have the widest selection of novels, non-fiction, newspapers and magazines. We have free to use computers and WiFi available across all our floors.

Kids love exploring our dedicated Children’s library on the ground floor, where they can read to their heart’s content! And with a range of exciting events taking place every week, there’s plenty of family-fun to be had at Central Library.

For those seeking a quiet place to study, we have a Quiet Study Area on the second floor, so you can crack on with that essay! 

Open 7 days a week, we look forward to welcoming you soon.
