West Sussex Libraries are now open for limited browsing and pre-bookable computer sessions.

Our current opening hours are:

  • Monday: 9.30am - 5.00pm
  • Tuesday: 9.30am - 5.00pm
  • Wednesday: Services by appointment
  • Thursday: 9.30am - 5.00pm
  • Friday: 9.30am - 5.00pm
  • Saturday: 9.30am - 4.30pm

We are still offering our “Select and Collect” service and there are two ways you can do this.

Staff Select

We realise that you may not know exactly what you want to borrow or may want a more general selection of books.

If you feel safer staying at home, or just miss having the time to browse, why not ask one of our expert staff to choose for you by completing our free Staff Select form online.

Customer Select

You can once again use the library catalogue to reserve specific titles for free in the usual way online or by telephoning your nearest large library (this would be Chichester Library 01243 777351).

Collection of Items

Once the items are available your local library will contact you by phone or email to enable you to collect your items.

Essential Delivery Service

If you feel safer staying at home or are unable to get to the library, we offer an Essential Delivery Service and may be able to deliver your items to you. Please indicate on the Staff Select form or during the phone call to the library that you would like to arrange a delivery.

You can find out more about our current offer and other services you can access from home on our website at: www.westsussex.gov.uk/libraries/current-library-services/

We look forward to welcoming you back to Chichester Library soon!
