Sutton Coldfield library will be closing for improvement works from 5pm on Saturday 13 January 2018 for 12 weeks. During the closure, users can use any of the city’s other libraries to borrow and return items.

Sparkhill Library - There is a major fault to the electricity/lighting on the ground floor at Sparkhill Library resulting in this area of the library having no lighting. For H&S reasons the Library will not re-open after the lunchtime closure until this is rectified.  A full telephone service will remain operational during normal opening hours. Customers can also return books/collect reservations from the member of staff at the Library entrance.
