Changes to library opening hours

From Monday 28 November opening hours at East Sussex Libraries are changing.  Following a public consultation earlier this year, the changes will see a reduction in opening hours mainly at less busy times.

The reduction in opening hours will save around £500,000 a year from library running costs, toward an overall savings target from the service of £2 million. All libraries will be open on a Saturday and many will stay open until 6pm on a Thursday. New opening hours for individual libraries can be found on ESCIS

When libraries are closed you can still access the e-library to renew and reserve books, update your details and download e-books. For those unable to visit a library due to ill-health, disability or caring responsibilities, there is a home library service, where volunteers select and deliver library books to your home. For more details visit You can also renew book through our automated renewals phone line by calling 0345 6080195.

Please do pass this information on to your colleagues, partners, members and others who may need to be informed of the change to library opening hours. We would encourage you, where possible, to direct people for the latest library information.
