ALL Worcestershire libraries will be closed from today, March 24 until further notice.

Worcestershire County Council is hoping the closures will help stop the spread of coronavirus.

A spokeswoman for the council said: “We have extended the return date for all library loans until further notice which will ensure that customers do not need to renew their library loans and will not build up library fines.

“Unfortunately we will not be able to meet any outstanding reservations or accept new reservations.

“Over the coming days we will update our webpages and social media channels with links to online services for library customers.”
