Uckfield library closes but books can still be reserved and collected

Uckfield Library in High Street.

All libraries across East Sussex, including Uckfield, are temporarily closed for general use because of the Coronavirus lockdown.

But people are still able to reserve up to ten books free of charge and collect them from the front entrance. This can be done using the library catalogue or by calling 0345 60 80 196.

Loans will be extended during the lockdown too.


The library service has also told users needing to use library computers to access essential services such as universal credit and internet banking, that sessions can be booked on the above number or online.

The eLibrary is accessible 24 hours a day and features thousands of eBooks, eAudiobooks, eNewspapers and eMagazines.

Home Library Service

The Home Library Service, which has continued to provide books to those who are particularly vulnerable throughout the pandemic, will also remain in operation.

These limited services will be available at all 17 libraries within the current reduced opening hours. They will be kept under review to ensure they are being delivered in the safest way possible.

More information about library services, opening hours and restrictions, is available online on the library services website or by calling 0345 60 80 196.
