Branch closure update - July 2020

Front line library services in all 25 branches, including Central Library 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 libraries with a new “order and collect” service to ensure we keep customers and staff safe.
