It covers the London Borough of Hillingdon area.

There is also a limited selection of books relating to:

  • London
  • Middlesex
  • Buckinghamshire
  • Hertfordshire

Most of the books and journals are reference only. You will need to come into Local Studies to use them.

The most popular Local Studies books are also available to borrow.

Each branch library has a small selection relating to its area.

The collection began in the 1930s with the encouragement of Mr H T Hamson, then editor of the Middlesex Advertiser and Gazette. For that reason the collection is slightly biased towards Uxbridge material although since 1965 great efforts have been made to comprehensively cover the whole of the borough of Hillingdon.
