Doncaster Central Library

The Central Library is now closed to customers to allow us to start relocating to the new Danum Gallery, Library and Museum, due to open in 2021.

On Friday 27th November, Doncaster Central Library will close its doors to customers for the last time to allow staff to start relocating stock over to the new Danum Gallery, Library and Museum, due to open in 2021.

Library members will still be able to loan books and spoken word items from several of our branch and community libraries. Details of which libraries are currently open, the services on offer and their opening hours can be found on our Branch Libraries page

We recognise that not all our customers are able to visit an alternative library to Central Library in person. As a temporary measure anyone requiring books and unable to access a library, can request a delivery from the Home Library service. Please phone 01302 734304 for further details.

All Doncaster library members have free access to eBooks and eAudio via OverDrive and Borrowbox and music downloads and streaming from Freegal. You can also access over a massive collection of eMagazines and digital newspapers through Overdrive and the Libby app. Visit our A - Z of Online eResources page for all our free digital services.

If you are not already a member of Doncaster Libraries and wish to join then please fill in the online membership form.

Ordnance Survey mapping for planning applications and building regulations

The Central Library is now able to provide ordnance survey mapping for customers applying for planning permission. The maps can be supplied as either paper prints or electronically as a PDF. We are able to offer a range of scales in both site plans and location mapping.  Prices are competitive and customers will have peace of mind that they have an up to date map with the correct licensing. 

Mapping is available for any location in England, Scotland, and Wales.
VAT is charged at the current rate on data purchases. Paper mapping is VAT free. For more information see the document attached to this page.
