Playsets

Any drama or play-reading group that meets in the borough of Barnet can borrow from approximately 1,200 playsets. Your group will need to be registered and there is a yearly subscription charge of £25. There are no additional costs, but charges will be made for lost or damaged copies.

To register your group, contact Finchley Church End library  or call 020 8359 3800. We will need your name, address, email and phone number.

Two additional group members can be nominated to collect the copies.

You can search for titles on the online library catalogue. Enter playset into the search box and a list of titles will appear.

The ‘details’ section of the catalogue record will give you an indication of the cast members.

    When you have made your selection send an email to us with:

    • the chosen title or titles (you can borrow up to six titles at a time)
    • the name of your group and the library card number.

    We will email you to let you know when the books are ready to collect. Playsets are only available to collect from Finchley Church End library at this time.

    Sets are issued for six weeks. There is no need to bring your library card with you as Playsets will be pre-loaned to you ready for collection.

    Once you have finished with the plays please return all copies to  Finchley Church End library
