November 2020 Lockdown Message

In line with the Government announcement of 31st October, introducing new national restrictions, libraries will be closed for general public access from Thursday 5th November 2020.

We  will continue to  offer our ‘Off the Shelf’ and ‘Reserve and Collect’ services and some libraries will also provide limited access to public PCs for essential use only.  Please check our website www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/libraries for updated information and collection times.

No fines will be incurred whilst libraries are closed, however, should you wish to return any items you currently have on loan, please return them using the library drop box or letterbox.  You can renew your library items at : https://gloucestershire.spydus.co.uk
