We look forward to opening our doors again as soon as possible. In the meantime, please follow @ideastores on Twitter. You can also follow @TowerHamletsNow for updates from Tower Hamlets Council.

When we’re closed there’s no need to worry about returning any books, CDs or DVDs you have out – everything is being renewed automatically.

Our buildings are shut but you can use our app to swipe into your own Idea Store 24 hours a day – from any device wherever you are. Get it now and unlock an amazing array of kit that lets you download films, music, books, magazines and newspapers directly onto your device for free. Trust us you need never be bored again.
