Libraries - news

Important notice - Easter opening hours

All libraries will be closed from Good Friday to Easter Monday (18 to 21 April) inclusive. Normal opening hours will resume on Tuesday 22 April.

Do you have a library card membership number starting with 9826?

This year we will be moving onto a new library management system and we need to update the older library cards that some of our customers have. If you have a library membership starting with the number 9826 please visit your nearest library to have your membership card upgraded. As long as your details are on our library system, these replacements are free of charge even if you've lost your card. All you need to do is verify your address (with a bank or credit card statement, utility bill or something similar) and we'll send you a replacement card.

The library management system stores information about our customers and our stock. We've been using the current system since 2005 and some of its functions are limited by today's technological standards. Later this year you'll be able to experience an exciting new look and feel when using our catalogue to search and renew items. It will also be easier to use the new system on hand-held devices such as phones.
