All North Somerset libraries, including the mobile library, are closed until further notice.

Extended access will not be available at Portishead Library, Winscombe Library, Worle Library and Children’s Centre and Yatton Library and Children’s Centre.

Some libraries share a building with children’s centres. If you are currently under midwifery care at one of the area’s children’s centres, keep attending at your usual location as these midwife appointments will continue.

All library loans will be extended automatically until Wednesday 1 July. Please do not return items during this time and please do not leave them on library doorsteps as they could be stolen or damaged.

Online services will still be available to use and we’re we’re working hard to develop additional digital resources.
