How to borrow an item

If you are interested in borrowing an item all you need is a special SEND library card. If you don't have one you will have to complete this form. The library will contact you once the card is ready to be collected.

To request an item please fill this form. Once completed, please email the form to library.enquiries@merton.gov.uk. Items are borrowed in the same way as books by using your library card and the self service kiosks. You can borrow items for three weeks, you will be able to renew an item if no one has reserved it.


As part of the project we also have a dedicated SEND book section in every library. We have purchased a wide range of books for both children and parents, have a look at the booklist.
