It's time to return or renew your books

Bracknell Central, Binfield, Crowthorne and Great Hollands Libraries are open again with limited hours and you can browse, reserve, return and renew books, plus using computers, printers and scanners (for 30 minutes only a day).

Please be aware fines have been re-introduced for books returned late since 27th July. If in doubt on the date they are due back or you need more time, please call Bracknell Library at 01344 423149 or email bracknell.library@bracknell-forest.gov.uk.

Keep using our online catalogue to place your reservations for Select and Collect, our new free service that allows you to choose your books, DVS and audio books from home and come to the library to collect them already issued to your card and safely bagged. The system will charge you automatically with reservation fees, but library staff will waive them, so proceed regardless of the charge. If Bracknell library is your collection site, please wait for the library staff to call you and arrange an appointment for collection.

FOR CHILDREN: no need to reserve books, we pre-select 5 books for early year (under 4) and you just need to come to the library for collection. For children 4 to 11 years old, request a Summer Reading Challenge pack via email or use Select and Collect.
