Hello and welcome to our site!
Langney Community Library has been open since 20 November 2018 and continues to grow in terms of membership and books available to borrow.

Thank you to all those who’ve volunteered their time and energy, those who’ve made cash donations and to everyone that has donated books – you’ve all helped make this possible! And of course, thanks to all our members.

Our plans continue to evolve albeit things take time. It has always been our plan to use part of the Community Library for a local Community Hub with strong links to schools and residents. And now, the Community Hub is available for use.

You can also follow us on Facebook or stop by the library to say hello! You can find us in Langney Shopping Centre. Our What3words location is ///income.react.store.

What we offer

Langney Community Library is run entirely by unpaid volunteer staff who aim to provide our members and other customers with a friendly and helpful experience. Membership is free and it takes just a few minutes to process your completed registration card. Once processed, you’ll get your own unique membership card which you can then use to borrow up to three books for up to three weeks. Non-overdue books can be renewed, up to twice, by email, phone or text/WhatsApp message. We don’t charge for overdue books but would suggest a donation to help pay for our general running costs.

Despite our limited space, we have a great range of books, including large print versions, and audio books, for adults, children and young people. These include fiction, biographies, information and reference books. We’re happy to help you find what you’re looking for.

Members have the use of four laptops (some restrictions apply) and we always try to have a computer buddy on hand to help those who need it.

Printing, photocopying and laminating services are available (charges apply); even if you’re not a member, you can send us an email with the item you want printed attached.

Opening hours

Our current opening hours are:

Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays: from 10am to 4pm

Saturdays: from 10am to 1pm


Further updates will be posted here as and when appropriate. You can also follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/langneycommunitylib.

We are dependent upon our wonderful team of volunteers, many of whom are senior members of the community. Please show respect to our volunteers and all other library users.
