What to expect What to expect
What to expect when you visit the library 
West Sussex Libraries are now open for limited browsing and pre-bookable computer sessions.
Face coverings must be worn in libraries to adhere to Government guidance.
We want everyone to feel safe in our libraries and our Customer Charter describes in more detail what we have done and what we would like you to do to help. Check out the picture version as well for a quick summary.

Select and Collect Select and Collect

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


Staff Select


We realise that you may not know exactly what you want to borrow or may want a more general selection of books.

If you feel safer staying at home, 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 enable you to collect your items.


Essential Delivery Service


If you feel safer staying at home or are unable to get to the library, we offer an Essential Delivery Service and may be able to deliver your items to you. Please indicate on the Staff Select form or during the phone call to the library that you would like to arrange a delivery.

Computer Sessions Computer Sessions

Limited computer sessions are only available when pre-booked in advance.
