News and Announcements

Libraries reopening update

Bexley Libraries will offer click and collect services from Central Library, Bexleyheath and Crayford Library from Monday 12 April, in line with the government's roadmap for the return to a more normal life. The other Council managed libraries will remain closed until further notice.

The introduction of click and collect services is the first step towards the safe and cautious reopening of our libraries. During the pandemic, library staff have played a vital role in the Council's response to COVID-19, developing expertise with mass testing, contact tracing and other essential roles.

As people start to enjoy the relaxing of the national restrictions, there is uncertainty about how this will affect COVID-19 rates, meaning our libraries will be reopened gradually. This will ensure library staff can play a key role in the Council's pandemic response for as long as necessary.

Visit our COVID-19 updates page for more information.

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.
