Community Libraries

We're committed to making our services as accessible as possible to the people of Guernsey.

As part of this commitment, we've begun an exciting program of establishing community libraries across the island.

Currently we operate community libraries at:

  • St Saviour's Community Centre
  • The Bridge
  • Rosaire Court
  • La Nouvelle Maraitaine
