Library services across Lincolnshire have adapted due to Tier 3 regulations

All 15 core Libraries and a number of community hubs across the county will be open - but only for click and collect and computer use.

Residents will be able to collect reserved books and use pre-booked public access computers to access essential digital public services. There will be no access for browsing.

To reserve books, visit or call 01522 782010.

To reserve a 30 minute session on a computer, call 01522 782010 and you will be transferred to your chosen library to make the booking.

Core libraries are located in Boston, Bourne, Gainsborough, Grantham, Horncastle, Lincoln, Long Sutton, Louth, Mablethorpe, Market Rasen, Sleaford, Spalding, Skegness, Stamford and Woodhall Spa.

A full list of community hubs offering services will be updated regularly and is available on

Councillor Nick Worth, executive member for culture, says: “We know these services are a real lifeline to the community.

“We’ve seen during last month’s lockdown, the book click and collect service works really well, and that residents have continued to use the computers to access essential digital public services.

“Again, I would remind residents to call ahead before making a journey - just to check they are open, have your books ready or a timeslot available on the computers.

“To reassure residents, we’re doing all we can to keep the facilities Covid secure – so there are many safety measures in place, including hand sanitiser, asking visitors to use face coverings, remaining two meters apart, quarantining books for 72 hours and keeping space beside computers.

Those who currently have loans from Hubs, which remain closed, will be extended into January.

Full details will be posted on the @Lincslibraries Facebook and Twitter pages.
