Limited library services to continue

The latest restrictions, designed to slow the spread of Covid-19, will mean that all 17 of the East Sussex’s library buildings are temporarily closed for general use.

However, from Monday, November 9, customers will be able to reserve books from the library catalogue via the website or by calling 0345 60 80 196, and pick them up from the front entrance of their local library.

Those needing to use library computers to access essential services such as universal credit and internet banking, will be able to do so by pre-booking a session on the above number or online.

Customers can continue to access a wide range of eBooks, eAudiobooks, eNewspapers and eMagazines, as well as information through East Sussex’s eLibrary.

The Home Library Service, which has continued to provide books to those who are particularly vulnerable throughout the pandemic, will also remain in operation.

These limited services will be available at all 17 libraries within the current reduced opening hours.

They will be kept under constant review to ensure they are being delivered in the safest way possible.

More information about library services, opening hour and restrictions, is available online on our website or by calling 0345 60 80 196.
