Knowsley Library Service lockdown update

Knowsley Library Service’s ‘Select and Collect’ borrowing service will be suspended with immediate effect following the start of the national lockdown today (Tuesday 5 January).

The Home Delivery Service is also suspended and with all the borough’s libraries closed computer access is not available.

The safety of the Library Service customers and staff is at the forefront of the decision to suspend these services during the current lockdown.

Although the branches will be closed the good news is that e-books are still available to borrow.

Borrowing e-books

The library website and online catalogue are available to access online. You can use this site to borrow eBooks and eAudioBooks as normal.

If you are not already registered for this service, you can create an account by emailing your name, address and postcode to
