Libraries Extra – open when we’re closed

From Sally McMahon
Head of Libraries & Information Services

On 1 August 2016 we’re launching a new, flexible service, giving you extra choice to access your local library.  By upgrading to a free Libraries Extra Membership Card, you will be able to use your library, even outside of staffed hours.

This will mean that most libraries will now be available seven days a week, doubling the amount of opening hours across the city.  Extra support will be available in libraries including a dedicated helpline, self-service kiosk, CCTV, and assistance from volunteers on some days.

We need to make changes to staffed open hours, so we can continue to provide city-wide libraries at a time of reducing budgets.  By becoming a Libraries Extra member you will have more freedom and flexibility to use your local library.

Please note that your local library may have changed its opening hours so please check the new times before your next visit.

Existing members will need to bring your current library membership card and one other proof of ID to the library to upgrade your card to Libraries Extra.

To find out more about the new service, how to become a member, or check out changes to library open hours, please visit brighton-hove.gov.uk/libraries

 A leaflet with the new opening hours can be found here.
