New services coming to Christchurch and Poole libraries
We are bringing services together to make them more convenient for residents. Our Customer Services and Library Services will be accessible in both Christchurch and Poole libraries from autumn 2021.
To allow for safe building adaptations, fit out, and for improvements to ventilation and other building systems, we will need to temporarily close the two libraries for the duration of the works in each building.Christchurch Library will temporarily close from 12 July and reopen by the end of August. For information about the project and about alternative library services, see information about Christchurch Library.
