Coronavirus update : Library services

All libraries remain closed until further notice. We are working hard behind the scenes to make sure appropriate measures are in place to keep customers and staff safe when we reopen. Until then, we encourage you to make the most of the free Read Liverpool online services. Loan periods have been extended so you will not be fined for late returns. You can renew items online. We are sorry but we are unable to take online reservations at the moment.
