Central Bedfordshire Libraries

Dunstable and Flitwick Libraries welcome customers back

We are delighted that from today, Tuesday 18 May Dunstable and Flitwick Libraries will be able to start welcoming customers back through their doors.

Customers will be able to go inside, browse the shelves and pick some top reads to take home. They will be able to book a 45 min slot to use the library computers. Photocopying and printing will also be available.

Customers who do not wish to enter the library will still be able to use the Select and Collect service and pick up their free reservations and book bundles from the library entrance.

In the coming weeks we plan to gradually reopen all Central Bedfordshire Libraries and look forward to welcoming customers back into our spaces. In the meantime all our libraries will continue to help customers to access books and enjoy reading via our Select and Collect service.

E-books, audiobooks and magazines continue to be available to customers 24/7 via our digital libraries on Libby and Borrowbox. Why not download the apps and give them a try?
