Filming at Rye Library

Rye Library will be closed from Thursday 17 January to Thursday 24 January 2019. It will reopen on Friday 25 January at 10:00am.

The County Council has been approached by the Sussex Film Office to enable Rye Library to be used as a location for the filming of a historical television drama, produced by Left Bank Pictures.

We understand that the closure of the library may cause some temporary inconvenience to customers, for which we apologise. However, we believe that allowing Rye Library to be used for the filming means we can play a role in supporting the economic benefits that are likely to result from Rye being used as a location.

Loans of all items borrowed from Rye Library will be extended for this period, so you won’t need to return an item while the Library is temporarily closed.

You can renew your library books, search and reserve items using the library catalogue and download eBooks and eMagazines from our eLibrary.

You can use your library card at any East Sussex Library. You can also renew items using our 24/7 automated renewal line on 0345 60 80 195. Please have your library membership number (on your library card) and your PIN to hand.

The nearest East Sussex libraries are in Hastings and Hollington. There is full information about these libraries on our website.

If you wish to visit to use the public computers and would like to book first you can call 0345 60 80 196 or speak to staff in the library.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
