Temporary library closures

We are investing in our libraries to improve heating systems. This will mean some temporary closures. All information will be posted here.

Please note:

  • We will extend exchange dates so that no items are due back during the closure 
  • As always you can return books to any of the other Reading libraries. 
  • The Library service's e-book, e-magazine and e-audio service is available all the time at www.reading.gov.uk/elibrary

Future works will be taking place at Caversham, Palmer Park and Central libraries in 2020 and information on these closure dates will be posted here.
