Bromham Library - Coronavirus update

Coronavirus Response from Bedford Borough Libraries

Following the announcements made by the government on 20 March to tackle the spread of the coronavirus, The Higgins Bedford and all Bedford Borough Council libraries will close with immediate effect.

For the time being, all planned events and activities are being cancelled; this includes activities planned for the Easter holidays.

To help library customers over the coming weeks, we are extending the due dates on borrowed items and will be pausing charges on any items that are already overdue.

The health, welfare and safety of our staff, volunteers and customers remains our top priority. We will provide further updates as soon as possible.

What this means for you

  • Loan periods for items issued Friday 20th March onwards have been extended from one or three weeks to twelve weeks
  • Items already on loan will be extended by 12 weeks
  • Items renewed online using Arena, the Bedfordshire Libraries app, or by phone will be renewed for 12 weeks
  • Overdue charges for items on loan will be paused for 12 weeks, though this may be extended if necessary
  • Reserved items will be held for 28 days, though this may be extended if necessary
  • All events and activities have been cancelled
