Woodbridge Library

Woodbridge Library is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm, and closed on Mondays and Sundays. For current information please contact the library at 01394 330855 / woodbridge.library@suffolklibraries.co.uk, or go to: www.suffolklibraries.co.uk/visit/locations-and-times/woodbridge-library. Out-of-hours book return available.

It is hoped that Woodbridge Library will be open for browsing from Tuesday 8 September. A limited number of customers will be permitted in the library at any one time so queuing may be necessary.

Reservations from the library catalogue are now available again and, due to its popularity, the Select and Collect service will remain available for the foreseeable future.

Libraries are offering access to computers for tasks such as Universal Credit applications and job seeking. Photocopying and printing have also been reintroduced. Customers will have to contact their library directly to book a computer and there will be cashless payment options for paying for printing and photocopying/scanning.

Suffolk Libraries aims to reintroduce normal library opening hours when and where possible over the coming months with the aim to get libraries back to their pre-lockdown opening hours by the end of the calendar year.
As with all these plans, everything is subject to changes in government advice and local Covid-19 infection rates.

It is now a legal requirement for all visitors to a library to wear a face covering. Once customers enter the library to use a printer or pc, they will also be invited to take part in the test and trace process by leaving their name and contact details. Their details will only be used for test and trace purposes and staff will dispose of the information after 21 days.
You can still download and stream free eBooks, eAudio, magazines, newspapers, films, documentaries and music. Suffolk Libraries is also running events online to enjoy from home at www.suffolklibraries.co.uk/whats-on and via Suffolk Libraries YouTube channel.

Customer service for Suffolk Libraries is available Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm, excluding bank holidays. Leave a message out of these hours.

Two writing groups from Woodbridge Library (Write Now and Writers’ Workshop) are meeting virtually at present. We hope to be back at the library soon. We are emailing our ‘homework’ to each other for feedback.
If you are interested in joining in, please email Jeannie@butterwicks.com for further details.

Remember: it’s fun to write, no qualifications needed – only imagination and a love of words.
