West Berkshire libraries shut with immediate effect
Online services still available and no fines will be imposed on late return of books
LIBRARIES in West Berkshire are shut.
A notice from Newbury library reads: 'Unfortunately, all our libraries are now closed to the public until further notice, due to government guidelines. We'll continue to support our communities and our e-services are available 24/7.'
The notice says fines have been waived for anything due by the end of May: 'Please don't worry about returning items to us: no fines will be due 20 Mar-31 May.'
Wash Common Library, which is run by volunteers, has also closed until further notice.
