During the coronavirus situation our members can temporarily access Ancestry online, from the comfort of their own home. This was previously only available via the computers in the Central Library. Many thanks to Proquest, our provider, for this enhanced access.
To gain access to Ancestry, please log into your Account in the top right of the home-page. The button to log into Ancestry will then appear below this box.
Current Service Update
Leicester libraries are excited to welcome customers back to 13 of our libraries. Go to our reopening page to find out about which libraries are opening and their hours. All our libraries are Covid secure.
You will be able to browse and borrow books, use a computer or WiFI and make enquiries. We regret we are unable to provide newspapers, magazines and DVDs at this current time.
Temporarily there are no overdue charges for library books and all new loans have reverted back to 3 weeks.
All of our eResources are still available, our website has full details of our eBooks, eAudiobooks, eComics and eMagazines.
The Central, 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 until 28 July.
