Customer notice: library overdue charges amnesty during July to be followed by re-instatement of charges from Monday 2 August.

Since we were required to close our library buildings in March 2020 to comply with Government Covid-19 requirements we have suspended library late return charges and fees. However, now that our libraries have restored their business as normal hours, from Monday 2 August 2021 we will be re-instating late return charges for items.

To allow for the return of any long overdue items, without penalty, we will be holding an amnesty for the month of July 2021. Any items returned during this time will incur no charges, even if they were overdue before the libraries closed in March 2020.

Coronavirus update

In line with Government guidance a full range of services are available at our libraries.    

Face coverings

While using our library buildings customers are encouraged to wear face coverings but this is not compulsory. 

Northamptonshire Libraries

Community Managed Libraries

Community Managed Libraries are where community or voluntary groups and organisations manage and deliver their library and the library space with support from the county council. They are places where people can continue to access a quality library offer, including library stock and IT, but where the rest of the library space is used in flexible ways that meet the needs of the community, whatever that may be.
