Bedford Borough Libraries Update
All Bedford Borough Libraries are open for browsing and PC use.
From Monday the 18th October increased services are available within our libraries.
More computers are available and you can pay for additional time. Tables and chairs are available for study, and the little chairs are back in our children’s libraries!
Request charges have also been reinstated.
Central Bedfordshire Libraries Select and Collect
All Central Bedfordshire Libraries are open for limited browsing and essential PC use ; find out more about the services available at these libraries here.
We will continue to offer Select and Collect services from all our libraries.
On Tuesday 7th September we reintroduced overdue charges and hire charges. Loan periods have been reduced to 3 weeks for books and spoken word, 1 week for DVDs, magazines and CDs. You will be responsible for ensuring that your items are renewed and kept up to date.
We have also reinstated the previous loan limits of 10 books, 4 DVDs and 4 spoken word or CDs, and the account limit has been halved to £15.00; above which your library card will be blocked.
Reservations remain free of charge.
Put the library in your pocket!
