Update - Covid-19

From Mon 23 March, The Curve, Britwell, Cippenham and Langley libraries are closed. The Curve remains open for access to the register service ONLY. Call 01753 475 111 for services.

We are postponing / cancelling all of our shows @ The Curve until May 23. Ticket holders have been contacted with more information and tickets for these events are no longer available.

While our libraries are closed we are moving as many of our services as possible online.

Don’t worry about late fines - we have extended the date due back and we will not be making any charges for late books until libraries are all open again and back to normal. You can still renew your books online or by phoning our renewals hotline 03031230035.

Our eBook, eAudiobook and eMagazine services are still available and you can find details on how to use these services online. We are working to enable people to join online and immediately begin to make use of our digital services. We have invested more into our collections and have increased the number of times you can renew each title.

You can also learn a language, find out about the history of Slough, learn a new skill and more all for free online with your library membership.

We are also exploring other useful resources for you which we will be posting soon. These will include virtual music and rhyme sessions that you can join in with, and more.

If you have any enquiries either about the service or if we can help provide you with any other information, please contact the library by email.

Our website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages will continue to share useful resources for those at home. Keep checking for new posts and service updates.
