Libraries and Learning
Coronavirus (COVID-19) information for our library users
To support social distancing and prevent the spread of infection from Coronavirus (COVID-19), all Worcestershire Libraries (including the mobile library service) will be closed from Tuesday 24 March until further notice.
We have extended the return date for all library loans until further notice which to ensure that customers do not need to renew their library loans and do not build up library fines. Unfortunately we will not be able to meet any outstanding reservations or accept new reservations.
Please click on the e Resources and Online Information button to find details of how you can download free e books, e audiobooks and e magazines and access other online services.
Over the coming days we will update our web pages and social media channels with links to digital library services that can be accessed from home and will work closely with other Council Services to identify new ways for libraries to support communities.

Worcestershire Library Strategy
Our Library Strategy which sets out a vision for Worcestershire libraries from 2020 to 2025 has been approved by councillors.
The strategy will shape how library services evolve to meet the changing needs of residents over the next five years. Work has begun to plan how the strategy will be implemented.
