Kesgrave Library - Dec

Kesgrave Library staff would like to thank all our customers for their wonderful support this year. It has been so lovely to welcome you back and to meet new customers throughout the year as well.

We wish you all a Happy Christmas and New Year and look forward to seeing you all in 2022.

Current Guidelines

Following the relaxation of Covid-19 restrictions on July 19, the library no longer has a limit on the number of customers who are allowed in at any one time. However, if we are especially busy at any time, we may ask customers to wait before entering for their safety and to avoid overcrowding. Masks are no longer mandatory but staff do request, if possible, that you wear one unless exempt.

Covid-19 Self-Test (Rapid Antigen Tests)

Did you know that your local library is a collection point for these tests?

Please just pop along and ask staff for however many boxes you or your family require.
