Shefford Library will be out of action for the next seven days ahead of a move to a second temporary home, as works to repair flood damage continues.
The library, situated in High Street, has been operating at Shefford Lower School for the past month but left its temporary base on Wednesday.
The facility will not be open again until September 8, when it moves to another temporary home at Shefford Conservative Office.
Opening hours will be 2-5.30pm on Monday and Wednesday, 9.30am-5.30pm on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and 9.30am-1pm on Saturday.
The drop-bin in at Morrison’s supermarket in Shefford will continue to be available for customers wanting to return loaned items, as will the virtual library at www.centralbedfordshire.gov.uk/libraries.

Councillor Ian Dalgarno, responsible for community services at Central Bedfordshire Council, said: “We are extremely grateful to Shefford Lower School for providing a base over the summer which allowed us to continue to run our summer activities and library service.
