Sorry, Mortimer Library will be closed Monday 12 March due to a temporary staff shortage. http://info.westberks.gov.uk/article/29652
If you are in Newbury today, come in from the cold and join us for a hot drink.
When we recently asked for comments and suggestions on how to improve the library, lots of people told us they would like to be able to buy a coffee downstairs. We are now trying out a new drinks machine and for a limited period all drinks are free. Choose from cappuccino, coffee mocha, decaf, espresso, flat white, latte and macciato and tell us what you think of it.
The library will be open until 4pm as usual this afternoon (Saturday).
If you borrowed something from us which was due for return yesterday, please don't worry as your loan has been automatically extended until Friday 9 March.
If you can't get to a library and need to renew your loans, remember that you can do so online, by email or via our 24 hour telephone renewals line. You can usually renew items up to four times this way, as long as nobody else has reserved them. (If we have obtained something for you from outside West Berkshire, this may not be possible.)

If you can unable to renew something this way and are stuck at home through bad weather or illness, please contact us by telephone or email and we'll see what we can do for you.
