Ancestry Library Edition
Our supplier has informed us that "beginning in March 2020, access to Ancestry Library Edition was temporarily expanded during Covid-19 shutdowns to allow remote access for Public Libraries. After nearly 2 years of temporary remote access, Ancestry has made the difficult decision to end it. Remote access for Ancestry Library Edition will no longer be available."
Leicester library members can still have free access to the Ancestry Library Edition in the Central Library via the public computers.
Welcome to Leicester Libraries.
You can browse and borrow books and DVDs, use a computer or WiFI and make enquiries. We regret we are unable to provide newspapers, magazines at this current time.
All of our eResources are still available, our website has full details of our eBooks, eAudiobooks, eComics and eMagazines.
All of our libraries are Covid secure and more information can be found on our reopening page. Hamilton and Fosse libraries remain closed, as some of our staff team are supporting Covid measures in the city. Book loans for these libraries have now been extended.
