Branch closure update - July 2020

Many of our libraries have now reopened but with limited services. Please check individual branch library pages for full opening hours and services

A new Order & Collect service is now available with books available to collect from libraries that have opened. Please check opening times before you visit.

Front line library services in the remaining branches are still currently closed, however electronic services (ebooks, e-audiobooks, magazines, newspapers and comics) are still operating.

We are busy planning for a phased re-opening of branch libraries to ensure we keep customers and volunteers safe.
