Norfolk Library Service
A message from Norfolk Library Service during lockdown
All Norfolk Library branches closed on Thursday November 5th as part of the second lockdown. We’re looking forward to being able to welcome you back in to libraries when it’s safe to do so, until then, please check out what we can offer you online:
You can still join the library by visiting: https://norfolk.spydus.co.uk/cgi-bin/spydus.exe/MSGTRN/WPAC/LOGINB?HOMEPRMS=GENPARAMS
Your details will be sent to you by email, with a card to follow in the post.
Joining the library gives you access to a large range of audio books and eBooks for children and adults. You can download them online at norfolk.overdrive.com or using the Libby app. All e-downloads are free, and there are no reservation charges or overdue charges. If you need help to get started you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
Need so ideas to get you started? Our YouTube Channel has videos of library staff talking about their favourite books, as does the National Shelf Service Channel, created by librarians nationwide during the first lockdown. We’ll be posting recommendations on our Facebook page daily to help you get inspired.
Still need help? Send us a message via Norfolk Libraries for Families and our librarian team will recommend some books for you.
