News from British Council Sri Lanka library IMPORTANT NOTICE

Dear Member,

Please be informed that in light of the current situation the British Council Library will remain closed for public and all events suspended across all our centres in Colombo, Orion City, Kandy and Jaffna until further notice.

Further announcements will be made in this regard.

We have taken the following measures to allow more flexibility during this time;

  • No fines for late returns for the aforementioned period and up to 3 days after we reopen.
  • Automatic extension of library membership for four weeks in the second instance.
  • General, Family, Gold Adult and Platinum memberships have been offered a free on-line library membership to enable access to on-line resources until we reopen.
  • Our free on-line resource ‘Learn English’ is available for kids under parent’s supervision.

Do feel free to send us an email on if you have any difficulties in logging in to our on-line resources.

The health of our colleagues, students and customers is our priority throughout this rapidly evolving situation. We are following local government and health authority guidance in this regard.

Thank you and stay safe.
