Libraries across Suffolk will be closing temporarily from the end of today (Friday, March 20) amid the continuing coronavirus crisis.
Despite this, Suffolk Libraries have pledged to keep helping people after library buildings close to the public for the foreseeable future.
Bruce Leeke, chief executive of Suffolk Libraries said: “We regret taking this decision but hope customers understand that we have to put people’s health and wellbeing first.”
Library buildings will close to customers from the end of March 20 and the mobile library service will be suspended.
Suffolk Libraries is now working on developing new ways of providing services to people, which will include exploring a mobile offer to customers which doesn’t compromise anyone’s health.
