Suffolk Libraries and Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Up to date information on how the pandemic is affecting the library service.

We encourage customers to wear face masks in libraries and on mobiles unless they have a medical reason for not doing so. We also ask customers to maintain a distance from each other and staff, and to use hand sanitisers.

All libraries are open. The home and mobile libraries services are running as normal.

This means you can carry out all pre-pandemic activities, such as browsing, using study spaces or simply spending time in the library.

Libraries are also hosting a full range of events and activities, such as pre-school tot rock and baby bounce sessions, and social groups for older customers.

Face masks and distancing

As ever, we place customer and staff safety at the forefront of what we do. We encourage library visitors to:

  • Wear a face mask when they enter a library or a mobile library, unless they cannot do so

  • Maintain a safe distance from other customers and staff

  • Use hand sanitisers where provided

Some customers are nervous at the prospect of crowded social spaces. We ask all customers to bear this in mind.


The customer service line is open Mon-Fri 9-5pm, closed bank holidays. Leave a message out of these hours.
