Libraries service updates
We are open
All our libraries are open. Visit our library directory to see opening hours for your library.
Browse and borrow
Browsing of children's picture books and board books and printed newspapers is now available.
You can also now borrow printed magazines.
Public PCs and study facilities
Customers are encouraged to wipe clean computer workstations and study tables before they start using them.
Keeping customers and staff safe
From 19 July, in line with government guidance, we encourage all visitors to:
- wear a face covering
- sanitise hands
- respect other peoples’ space
NHS Test and Trace
You can choose whether to use the NHS Test and Trace app to record your presence in library buildings by using the QR code at the entrance to libraries.
If you do not have access to the app, you can fill in a short printed slip with your contact details and post it into the available box.
You can reserve any items you wish to borrow and collect them from whichever library is the most convenient for you using our online library catalogue.
Request charges apply.
