News and Announcements
Bexley libraries are closed due to the national lockdown introduced to help control the spread of COVID-19.
Libraries will remain closed for general access until further notice with library staff being redeployed to support the Council's response to COVID-19.
The Post Office at Crayford Library will remain open throughout the coming weeks as an essential service.
All items that customers have borrowed will be automatically extended until 31 January 2021, so there is no need to worry if your books are due to be returned in the coming month.
Delivery of the Home Library Service remains suspended until further notice.
You are still able to access our online services, including free access to a wide range of e-books, e-magazines, e-newspapers and other digital resources.
Changes to Library Services in Bexley 2020
The consultation period has now come to an end.
Thank you for your responses to the survey which are now being considered.
The consultation outcome and the proposed new model for the Library Service will be reported to the Council’s Public Cabinet meeting on 25 January 2021 when a decision also will be taken.
Winter Mini Challenge
The Reading Agency have partnered with inclusive publisher Knights Of for an 'Everyone is a Hero' themed Winter Mini Reading Challenge encouraging children to keep reading through the winter holidays by rewarding them for reading and reviewing books.
Every time children finish a book, they add it to their challenge website profile and leave a short review. If they read three books, they'll receive a virtual badge and special Everyone is a Hero certificate to print off and keep.
There's a whole host of fun activities, videos and reading recommendations, plus an exciting competition. Find out more on the Reading Agency website.
We have put together a special collection of Winter Mini Challenge eBooks.
The challenge will run until 15 January.
