Sandgate Library: Ongoing Closure

Sandgate Library is currently closed due to COVID, in common with every other Library on Kent.

Although it was suggested libraries may start to reopen this week, there is no current guidance that they should do so in England,.

We aim to reopen as soon as we are advised it is safe to do so, in line with other Kent Libraries. All current borrowings have been extended to the end of June, and will be further extended if libraries remain closed.

Even on re-opening, it is expected there will be restrictions in place to ensure user and staff safety, and in particular group meetings / sessions will not restart for the foreseeable future.

In the meantime library users can access online books and resources at
