Luton Libraries during Lockdown

Luton Central, Leagrave and Stopsley Libraries are currently still open with reduced hours offering:

Book Drop – a handy ‘Book Drop’ bin at the entrance doors so customers do not need to come into the library to return books. The return date for all items borrowed has been automatically renewed. Customers will not be charged overdue fees during lockdown.

Select & Collect.  – phone or email the library and choose from; pre-selected bundles, staff choice or specific titles. There is a great selection of books for babies and toddlers, just ask for a pre-selected bundle. How about a selection of Christmas books, nursery rhymes or a title from the new Covid Children’s Booklist;  a collection of books to help children stay safe, calm, connected and hopeful during the COVID-19 crisis.

Luton Libraries Online – join online for free access to a fantastic selection of books and resources to keep you amused at home.  You’ll find e-books, newspapers, magazines and comics, e-learning courses and streaming services including concerts and films. You can even research your family history with Find My Past and browse the Encyclopedia Britannica.
