There are eight library sites and three heritage buildings, serving 206,075 residents, as of April 2021.
In 2018 Sutton Council’s Cultural Services became the Lead Authority for The Library Consortium. The Library Consortium forms a collective of 20 authorities who utilise the same Library Management System, allowing access across all authorities’ catalogues for both physical and digital stock and sharing these resources to its one million members.
