Dorset Council Libraries have been closed because of the coronavirus.
This is based on the current advice from government as libraries are public places which have social contact.
“This decision wasn’t an easy one balancing the impact on our users and communities, particularly at a time when some people may need support and managing the wellbeing and health of employees,” said a spokeswoman.
“Don’t worry about returning items late during this closure period as any charges will be cleared when the items are returned.”
You can continue to access our digital resources, e-books, audiobooks and magazines online www.dorsetforyou.gov.uk/libraries
Closure is until further notice and we will regularly review to take account of the latest position and advice on COVID-19.
Dorchester TIC, which is located in the Dorchester Library and Learning Centre, will be working virtually answering emails and telephone calls.
