The upper floor and IT suite at Margate Library will be closed today (15 October) from 1pm due to staff shortage.

Margate Library is open for bookshelf browsing, pre-booked computer and WiFi sessions.

We are slowly reintroducing events and activities at some of our libraries where possible. Please contact the library for details.
