Templeman Library re-opening plans and
what to do with your books

We're making preparations to re-open the Templeman Library in line with Government guidance, with hygiene, safety and social distancing measures in place, including:

  • a limit on the number of people in the library
  • a limited "click and collect" book borrowing service
  • restricted study space and printing facilities.

We'll announce the opening date once confirmed. Please also see our updates to Templeman Library services.

If you're returning to Kent for the new academic year, you won’t have to return any items you have on loan until at least 28 September. If you are leaving Kent before September, please follow our advice on returning Templeman Library items.
