Wokingham Borough Libraries
At present Wokingham Borough Council has taken the difficult decision to temporarily close all of its libraries. A large number of online library services are still available, including ebooks, enewspapers and audiobooks. While the libraries are closed we have suspended the fines so there is no need to renew/return your books. Please look after the books, until such time as the libraries reopen, then you will be able to return.
Check out the Libraries Blog on https://wokinghamboroughlibraries.wordpress.com/ for different book themed ideas and activities to do at home that maybe of interest to your students.
