The Library is CLOSED
With Guernsey back in lockdown, the Library is closed until further notice. Please stay at home and follow Public Health advice.
Rest assured, we will re-open as soon as it's safe to do so. In the meantime, there is no need to worry about bringing your books back - just keep them safe for the time being. There'll be nothing to pay and you won't receive any reminders.
Our Home Delivery Service is also suspended.
While you’re staying at home, don’t forget about our huge digital collections of eBooks, audiobooks, newspapers, magazines and other resources, all available for free with your library card. Get started through the links above and join online if you’re not a member already. And if you need some ideas to keep your children entertained, check out our Stay At Home page.
Thank you for your understanding and support, and stay safe.
