From 12th April Libraries reopen

Monday 12th April will see you welcomed back to our libraries.

A limited number of people will be allowed into the buildings at one time and will be able to browse a reduced number of books.

For those people who need to return books, there are drop boxes outside all the county council’s libraries, meaning items can be returned without going into the library building.

Customers will still be able to reserve any item from lending stock; and collect it from the library of their choice.  This service is still free of charge.

Computers will be available during time-limited, pre-booked sessions.

IT for you sessions, helping people to use online services will resume in Eastbourne, Hastings and Crowborough, while those needing to take part in virtual job interviews will be offered support and a quiet space to do so at Hasting and Eastbourne libraries. These services must be pre-booked.

Ongoing restrictions will also mean there will be no toilet facilities or photocopying service, and DVDs, newspapers and periodicals will not be available when the libraries reopen.

For more information about the opening times, services available at libraries and the restrictions in place, please visit the website.

In line with Government guidance customers will need to wear a face covering.  You will also be asked to either scan the QR code or to leave their name and phone number at the time you go into the library. This information may be shared with the NHS test and trace programme if needed.

If you have any questions please call us on 0345 60 80 196 or contact here.
