Our Libraries are open
We’re operating a full service again. For more information on the measures that are 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.
You must wear a face covering for the duration of your visit unless medically exempt.
We’re working hard to bring back our regular events and activities. The programme will be more streamlined, allowing us to focus on our most popular activities. Visit the What’s on page for the latest news and information.
The Local Studies and Archive Centre has now fully reopened. Please note that they will continue to operate on an appointment only basis on Saturdays until further notice.
You can keep up with all the latest news and highlights by subscribing to our newsletters through the Council's website.

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.
