Libraries across Suffolk are set to close after today (Wednesday) for at least the next few days.
However, Suffolk Libraries is aiming to reopen some sites next week offering some limited and essential services, subject to government approval.
The government’s draft lockdown regulations make it clear that some aspects of the library service may be classed as essential and can therefore continue to run.
Suffolk Libraries will close all libraries on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday to provide time for staff to prepare – if it is possible – to reopen some sites.
Customers don’t need to worry about returning current library loans as return dates will be extended and fines will be suspended until December 16, regardless of whether some sites reopen next week.
