What you can borrow and what's new


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.

All books including eBooks are free to borrow or download, and you can hire DVDs and music CDs for a small charge.

Also free to download are eAudiobooks, eMagazines and eNewspapers.

You can reserve and renew items online with your library card and PIN, and collect them from your local library.
