While not all libraries in the county are closing, those remaining open will be offering a much reduced service.
All book borrowing throughout the county is suspended and there will be no group activities or meetings held.
From Monday 23rd March the few libraries that remain open to the public will only be providing access to computer facilities, wi-fi and information and signposting to callers.
Until further notice the Library Service asks you to please follow government advice and in the interests of your own well-being and safety and that of others and library staff do not come to a library unless your visit is unavoidable.
Borrowers need not worry about being unable to return books etc. by their due date as charges for all for overdue items are being waived.
Any membership due to expire before Tuesday 30th June will be extended and will not lapse.
Loans will be extended to Tuesday 30th June and reviewed after this.
The Library Service's extensive online resources, e-books, e-audio books and magazines are unaffected and available to library members .
Not a member of the library and interested in using the online services?

(NB: if your browser generates a "security warning" as some do because the Bucks CC site has an out-of-date security certificate, you can safely ignore this)
You can find the libraries that are open and keep up to date with changes and developments via www.buckscc.gov.uk/libraries
Please continue to check the Haddenham Community Library Website for updates.
