The main library for the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Much more substantial than the rather disappointing Chelsea library, it is located in the impressive Town Hall building just off Kensington High Street.
If you are resident or working in the borough (this includes students) then you are eligible for a library card. Kensington library has a large selection of reference material in particular, and you can also borrow CDs, DVDs etc.
Their website has a lot of useful information about what the library offers.
