All you need to know about changes to our Libraries service during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak.

As our top priority is to ensure the Health and Safety of customers and staff, we have set up this dedicated page.

Owing to the recommendations from the government to avoid non-essential travel and maintain social distancing, having initially closed Nottingham City Libraries temporarily, we are now closed until further notice. When we reopen, we will let you know via our website. 


All our Nottingham City Libraries are now closed until further notice.

Any books, CDs and loans services currently on loan will be extended during the closure period. 

Any fines for books will be suspended, so customers will not need to attend libraries to pay fines during the closure period.

During this period, you will not be able to reserve items, or place inter-library loans.

Our Home Library Service and Asian Home Library Service have also been suspended.

All events and activities are postponed and suspended.

Our e-services will be available for customers to access through online capability. More information can be found via our e-services page.

New customers may join the library online at where you will be able to access our e-services.

Over the coming weeks, our teams will be contacting event vendors to work through postponing any planned activity, and we will keep you updated when event activity can be resumed. 

We continue to pay close attention to all government recommendations being updated via the Nottingham City Council page and will keep you updated about library services via our page.

Whilst our libraries are closed, we are asking that if you have a query to get in touch via our Live Chat and we will endeavour to answer as soon as possible.
