Sevenoaks Library is open for browsing and borrowing, as well as a Select and Collect service.

The ramp at Sevenoaks Library is closed due to a fault with the automatic doors. Please enter the building via the entrance down by the Citizens Advice or on the Leisure Centre side of the library.

We regret all of our library events and activities including Storytime, Talk Time, Rhyme Time and groups are suspended until further notice.
