Folkestone Library

The Heritage Room at Folkestone Library will be closed all day on Saturday 4 December, due to staff shortage.

Folkestone Library is open for book browsing and borrowing, prebooked public PC and WiFi sessions as well as bookable access to our local studies collection.

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