Kingston Library - Libraries Xtra Hours

Libraries Xtra is our way of giving you access to the library when it suits you. You can use your library card to enter the building beyond the staffed hours and use the library.

To register for the Libraries Xtra scheme you will need to upgrade your membership by visiting Kingston Library and speaking with a member of staff. 

Please note that on the days when the library opens after staffed hours, there is a short turnaround period when all members of the public must leave the building prior to any Libraries Xtra members re-entering - this includes any visitors hiring the Meeting Pod.

Library items can also be renewed by telephone using the 24 hour automated Telephone Renewal Service.  You must have your library card number and PIN to do this. Remember to choose option 4 for Milton Keynes Libraries (not option 2 for Buckinghamshire).

You can use the national Ask a Librarian 24/7 Enquire service if you have a specific question (this service is not available on Bank Holidays).

Enquire is not able to answer enquiries relating to Milton Keynes Libraries or your library account.  Please contact us directly and we will respond to your enquiry when the library is next open.
