Acle Library is now an Open Library

Open Libraries  

How Open Libraries work

You’ll need to register to use the library during un-staffed hours by talking to a member of staff at the library.

Under 16s cannot register for self-service access, but they are welcome to come in to the library during un-staffed hours if accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Once you have registered to enter the library while it’s un-staffed, you will be able to scan your library card and type your PIN into the access point near the library entrance.

When you use Open Libraries, remember:

     Take care of your library space while staff are away

     Be aware when entering the building and don’t let anyone else enter behind you

     CCTV cameras are in place for your peace of mind and safety

You will hear pre-recorded messages to let you know when staff are on site and when the library is due to close

Please remember to bring your library card on every visit - you will not be able to enter the library without it.

Open Library User Policy

The following “Open Libraries” User Policy has been created to protect the rights and safety of library customers and staff, for the preservation and protection of library materials, equipment and facilities and to ensure a welcoming environment for reading, learning and other library activities.

Open Library conditions:

Customers must be aged 16 or over.

Customers must have a full up-to-date membership with no history of misusing library facilities.

Under 16’s are welcome to come into the library during Open Library hours accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Customers should be aware that the library will not be staffed during Open Library hours. There may be other people using the building but they will be unable to assist you.

Customers should understand the emergency evacuation procedures for the library during Open Library hours and familiarise themselves with evacuation routes in the event of a fire.

Customers should please remember that all items that you want to take home are borrowed at the self-service kiosk.

Customers will be asked to sign a form stating that you have clearly understood the terms and conditions of using the library as an Open Library customer.

Home Library Service

The ‘Royal Voluntary Service’ and Norfolk County Council’s Home Library Service


Norfolk Library and Information Service, alongside their partners RVS, offer a free home delivery service to anyone living in Norfolk who is unable to use a branch or mobile library, either temporarily or on a permanent basis, as well as careers whose caring responsibility prevents them from using the library.

Home Library Service customers have access to the same range of materials and services as users of branch and mobile libraries, and you can reserve items from any Norfolk Library free of charge.

The home library service provides books on wheels to the homes of people who like to use the library service but are unable to get to a branch or mobile library due to age, disability or mobility.

If you would like to either use this service or help as a volunteer, call 01603 397998. When you contact us we will chat to you about your needs, and find out what you like to read and listen to. We can then choose books, talking books and other items for you according to what you like.

Norfolk’s libraries have an excellent selection of books in large, as well as standard, print to suit your personal reading tastes and interests. We also stock a large range of talking books.


Parish Lunch Club  

The  next Parish Lunch will be  on

Thursday 28th June 2018

Can you please let Trish or Vivienne know if you are unable to attend so they can prepare the right amount of meals for the day. Several times recently food has been wasted as a number of people did not turn up when they were expected and had not cancelled.

If you can let Viv or Trish know by the Tuesday before it would be a great help.
