Doncaster Central Library

The Central Library is open until 27th November 2020 but on reduced hours. There will be no building access to the public but we will be open for returns and collections. Use our new Order & Collect service to reserve books.

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, music downloads and streaming from Freegal and our fantastic new service form RBdigital which gives access to a wide range of eMagazines, eComics and digital newspapers. Visit our A - Z of Online eResources page for all our free digital services.
