All East Sussex libraries are now open with reduced opening hours.

Anyone visiting libraries is required to wear a face covering, unless exempt. We are not able to offer a full service and encourage people to continue to use our eLibrary if possible, so that we can manage customer numbers safely.

If you have any questions regarding the reopening of libraries, please contact us via our online form or ring our enquiries line 0345 60 80 196.

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