Libraries Reopening Libraries Reopening

Libraries in West Sussex will be starting a phased reintroduction of services on the 6th July with a Select and Collect option from the front doors of all 36 library buildings.

Browsing in the library is not yet available; however restoring customer access to IT is a high priority whilst still enabling staff to have time to complete their jobs in safety.


Please visit your local library webpage to find their temporary opening hours.

Select and Collect Select and Collect

There are two ways you can 'select and collect'.


Staff Select

While we have now reopened our library catalogue for reservations, and browsing in libraries is not yet available, we realise that you may not know exactly what you want to borrow or may want a more general selection of books.

So if you cannot get out of the house, or just miss having the time to browse, why not ask one of our expert staff to choose for you by completing our free Staff Select form.


Customer Select

You can once again use the library catalogue to reserve specific titles for free in the usual way online or by telephoning your nearest large library (details on the left of this page).


Collection of Items

Once the items are available your local library will contact you by phone or email to arrange a timed collection slot.

Library Returns Library Returns

Thanks so much for getting your items back to us, we have already received 25,000 returns!


If you have books that you are keen to return outside of our temporary opening hours we have large letter boxes available at:
