Service Disruptions

National Lockdown - update 5 January

Inspire Culture and Nottinghamshire County Council are committed to the wellbeing of staff and customers during the current coronavirus pandemic. 

All Inspire Nottinghamshire Libraries and Archives will be closed until further notice during national lockdown. We can continue to offer limited services under government guidelines (page 19) to help support our communities. We have done everything possible to ensure we deliver these services safely.  

During this time;

  • Books due back from 2 January onwards will have their return date extended – no need to renew your items
  • Overdue charges will not apply whilst libraries are closed.
  • Reservations can be made during our closure and will be processed ready for when we reopen. Collection can be made upon receipt of a notification and subject to library opening times. This may take a few days once we reopen so please bear with us.
  • Join the library online or via Ask Inspire to access E-Resources, PCs, and Click & Collect.
