Libraries Unlimited has announced that libraries across Devon will temporarily close from today (Friday 20 March), in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

Across the county, library staff are trying to continue to provide library services in different ways.

In Exeter, they are trialling ‘books by post’.  Others will be providing online sessions such as Bounce & Rhyme, reading groups, and story times.  There will be IT help, provided remotely.

Staff will be checking in by telephone with customers who they know to be vulnerable and needing social contact.

They will be taking telephone calls, helping with renewals and helping people online to access eBooks.

The mobile library service and the home library service are also temporarily suspended.

For the most up-to-date information call Libraries Unlimited or check their website. You can also check your local library’s website.

The changes are until further notice.
