Self service machines for Littlehampton Library

Littlehampton Library will be closed for four weeks from Friday December 2 at 5pm while new state-of-the-art self-service machines are installed.

People can still borrow up to 20 items before the temporary closure or use other nearby branches – including Rustington, East Preston and Bognor Regis. The service will reopen at 10am on Tuesday, January 3.

West Sussex County Council Deputy Leader, Lionel Barnard, who oversees the Library Service, said the new self-service terminals are an easy and efficient method for loaning items and can be used by everyone.

He added: “You will be able to print a list of what you have borrowed, check when an item is due for return, and even make any cash payments. Staff will also be on hand to help.”
