Kesgrave Library - May

Staff are pleased to announce that Kesgrave Library is now open for browsing. Due to the size of the library, we are only able to accommodate three customers in the building at any one time.

To avoid disappointment and prolonged queuing, we are asking customers to phone and book a 15-minute appointment to come in. Please ring the library on 01473 626103 to book a time.

We understand that some customers may be feeling nervous about returning to browsing, so will be continuing to run our Select and Collect service alongside the re-introduction of opening the library space. If you would like to continue to use this service, please ring us to arrange a time/date for collection of your requests.

Select & Collect – This service is open to any age group and has proved very popular. Staff select a variety of books for customers, based on the information you give us about the types of books and authors that you like to read. Staff can also reserve in any items for you if they are not available at Kesgrave.

Our opening hours are: -

Monday 10.00 – 1.00 p.m.

Tuesday 10.00 - 1.00 p.m./2.00 - 5.00 p.m.

Wednesday 2.00 - 5.00 p.m.

Thursday 2.00 - 5.00 p.m.

Friday 10.00 - 1.00 p.m./2.00 - 5.00 p.m.

Saturday 10.00 - 1.00 p.m.


Track & Trace – all customers who come into the library will be asked to either complete a Track & Trace form or to scan the library’s QR code on their phone, to log that they have been on site. All completed track and trace forms will be kept safely and destroyed after 21 days, if we are not contacted to say a customer has tested positive.

Face Masks – Please can we remind customers that it is a mandatory requirement that they wear a face mask which covers their nose and mouth when collecting their requests or coming into the library. Thank you for your understanding.

Facebook - Staff will also continue to post information and activities on the Kesgrave Library Facebook page. Please ‘Like’ and ‘Follow’ our page for up-to-date information.

Instagram – Staff have recently set up an Instagram account. If you would like to follow us, please look for Kesgrave Library.

Word Play Sessions – staff are currently working hard to find a way to be able to hold face-to-face Tot Rock/Baby Bounce and Story Time sessions in a safe environment at a location close by to the library. Please look out for posts on our social media accounts and for posters advertising the reintroduction of these sessions.

We look forward to seeing you all very soon. Thank you for all your support.
