The Library Loans Service


The Library Book Loans Service provides loans of books and an inter-library loans service for material not held in the Library.

The service is available to Members and House staff, in connection with their Parliamentary duties. Named Members’ staff can request and collect items on behalf of their Member.

Items can be collected from the Members’ Library, or in exceptional circumstances, posted to the borrower.  Special arrangements exist for constituency staff.

The Library Loans Service is based in the Members’ Library in the Palace of Westminster. Contact 020 7219 1515 or
