Library services from April 12 2021
Following Government guidance regarding step 2 of the roadmap out of lockdown, all Warwickshire County Council libraries will provide a Grab & Go service from 12 April 2021, replacing the current Click & Collect service; visit for 30 minutes to browse, borrow, collect requests and return. Visit at any time during the library’s opening hours. Please continue to pre-book computers.
We understand you may not be able to visit so the return date for all items on loan has been extended until at least April 30 2021; overdue fines do not currently apply.
If you visit a library you should wear a mask unless exempt and sanitise your hands. You will be asked to provide contact information for NHS Test and Trace. Adhere to the national restrictions and stay at home if you have any symptoms of coronavirus.
