See how you can work with us across our network of libraries and with our thousands of customers.

Suffolk Libraries is a charity. We receive funding from Suffolk County Council to run the library service but to ensure we have enough money to enable the growth and sustainability of our current offer to the people of Suffolk, we are always seeking ways to create partnerships with businesses on a mutually beneficial basis. Becoming a charity has allowed us to think differently about our offer to our customers and, without these constraints, speak with like-minded businesses to discuss working in partnerships.

We have 45 libraries, in high street locations, across the length and breadth of Suffolk and employ over 400 staff. Every year, Suffolk people make around 2 million visits to libraries. We are very proud that our libraries are much-loved and well-used in all of the communities they sit in and support our many customers to work, rest and play.

Books are just part of what we offer. All libraries offer free Wi-Fi, we host banking drop-in sessions with Barclays and we hold an amazing range of community events such as mother and baby sessions, slimming clubs, music gigs, fashion shows... the list goes on.

Potential ways of working together:

  • Joining up to help your company to reach a different audience.
  • One-off or regular pop-up promotion of your business in our libraries.
  • Permanent concession space for your business in our libraries.
  • Sponsorship of one of our many activities to promote your company.

This list is by no means exhaustive. If you would like to discuss any of this further or have your own ideas, please contact Bruce Leeke by emailing
