From 13 July we will be reopening five libraries in East Sussex.

We are not able to offer a full library service due to the need for social distancing. We will be encouraging people to continue to use our eLibrary where they can so that we can manage customer numbers safely.

If you have any questions regarding the reopening of libraries or available services, please contact us via our eform or on the enquiries line 0345 60 80 196.

For more information on the available libraries, opening times and services visit the Libraries Reopening Plan.

1. Wellbeing Boxes

Wellbeing Boxes are resources to help you take ownership of your health. Each box has interactive resources, local service information and literature about different areas of wellbeing, using the NHS 5 steps to mental wellbeing (connect, be active, take notice, keep learning, give).

What do the boxes contain?

Family and Activity Wellbeing Box

Activities and information for parents/carers with children aged 0–11. Most activities are designed to include your whole family and focus on all areas of wellbeing.

Teen Wellbeing Bags

Suitable for 11–18 year olds, with a focus on physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. The bags can be borrowed by individuals or by organisations for group work.

How do I borrow a Wellbeing Box?

The boxes are easily portable with a clip on lid and carry handle.

The whole box can be borrowed for free from the library, by library members – for up to 3 weeks.
