Northamptonshire Libraries

Northamptonshire Libraries have announced the next phase in county-wide library re-openings from Monday 14th September, and will be welcoming customers back into libraries for a limited browsing service.

In order to do this safely, the service will need to control entry and each library will manage this in a way that suits their layout. In general, browsing will be by a bookable session. Walk in will be available, but only if there are no booked appointments at that time.

Each library will allow a limited number of customers into the building, depending on the safe capacity of the library. The library will be marked out to ensure social distancing around shelves and there will be one way systems. Browsing will also be time limited.

Since the closure of libraries across the county in March this year, all library charges had been suspended. However, from Monday 5th October 2020, all library charges have been reinstated. This will include the late return charges on borrowed items, computer hire and printing charges. Safe cash handling procedures will be in place, but where possible, you will be encouraged to pay by card. 

If you have any queries, or would like to book an early browsing slot, please contact your local library where staff will be pleased to offer assistance.   

Further information is available on the website.

Kettering Library is open on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 10am to 4pm.
