Sonning Common Library

News from the library, Mar/Apr/May 2021

At time of writing the library is closed again under lockdown restrictions. Officially only larger libraries (Henley being the nearest) are allowed to offer ‘click and collect’ for people who are desperate for something to read, but the guidelines are under review. So if you’re in need of books, whether you’re over 70 or under 10 (and anything in between!) please get in touch with the library at: to find out what the latest arrangements are (or try phoning 0118 9722448 and leave a message) and we’ll see what we can do to help….

Information about Oxfordshire Libraries and online services is available 24/7 at:

If by the time you read this the library has reopened, the opening hours will be these:

Monday           2 – 5pm
Wednesday     2 – 5pm
Friday              9 – 1pm; 2 – 5pm
Saturday          9.30 – 12.30pm

We will be open under ‘Covid-secure conditions’, meaning that masks should be worn in the library (unless medically exempt), books are quarantined for 72 hours, numbers allowed in are monitored, and short visits are encouraged.
