News and Announcements

 

Bexley Libraries are in the process of leaving the London Libraries Consortium. This means that from 15 November 2018 you will no longer be able to reserve items from other consortium members and from 15 December 2018 you will no longer be able to borrow or renew items from other consortium members.

If you currently have any non-Bexley items on loan or have a non-Bexley library card, please speak to a member of staff for advice.

Items requested that are not in Bexley’s stock may be obtained by purchase or inter library loan.
