Leisure, arts and libraries 

If you are looking for something to do in your spare time, or to help you keep active or learn new skills then the Leisure, Arts and Libraries page can help you.

From special interest clubs to days out for the family to enjoy, you will find a whole range of services available. You will also be able to find out about your local library and arts services.

The boroughs libraries all offer a great range of services, most of which are free. These include borrowing books, computer and internet access, a home library service and the loan of DVDs and CDs for a small fee.

You will find lots of information on the arts including links to the galleries, and community and public arts project such as the A13 Artscape - one of the largest and most ambitious public arts project in the United Kingdom.
