Suffolk Libraries and COVID-19

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

All libraries have reopened fully. The home and mobile libraries services are running as normal.

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

Libraries are also hosting a full range of traditional 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 therefore ask visitors to:

  • Wear a face mask when you enter a library or a mobile library
  • Maintain a safe distance from other customers and staff

This is in line with government guidance, and will help reduce the spread of infection.

Some customers may feel nervous at the prospect of social spaces opening up. 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.
