All libraries will operate on a self-service basis on Saturdays and Central Library will no longer be open on Sundays.
All items that are currently on loan to customers have been extended until 4 July 2021 so you will need to ensure you have returned or renewed any items before this date.
For information about any measures that may be in place, please visit the COVID-19 updates page. Please check before your visit for any variations to opening times. These may change at short notice due to the ongoing effects of COVID-19 on our ability to staff and open libraries.
Changes to Bexley's Digital Library
Our digital collection of comics and magazines has moved from RBdigital to Overdrive.
You can continue to browse, borrow, and enjoy all the same great magazines you enjoyed from RBdigital, now available to read in your browser, while connected to the internet or by downloading the Libby app to read offline.
If you already enjoy the Libby app, there is no change, other than you may notice even more great titles available for you to borrow.
Magazines available from PressReader will not be affected.
