New e-book service for Bracknell libraries

Bracknell Forest libraries are very happy to be offering a new e-book service – the 3M Cloud Library. The app-based system provides an intuitive and seamless way to borrow e-books. All you need is your library card number and PIN.

Come along to Sandhurst Library on Thursday, 2 June for a demonstration. If you can’t wait, take a look at the Cloud Library now and see what takes your fancy.

Newspapers needed

We need your help with our newspaper appeal. There are several gaps in our collection of local newspapers and we need to fill them before microfilming for our archive. We are interested in issues of:

  • Bracknell News  - August 2011 to August 2015
  • Bracknell Times - October 2010 to August 2011

If anyone has copies that they no longer need we would love to hear from them. Please contact Helen or Huw at Bracknell Library on 01344 423149 or email
