Library update

From 5 January, our council-run libraries remain closed for events, browsing, borrowing and returning items.

Following government guidance, we are still offering a click and collect service and library members who do not have computer access at home or are looking for work will be able to book a computer to use.  This will be kept under review, in line with infection rates in the county.

You can also visit our digital library and access thousands of books, audiobooks, magazines and newspapers on your phone, tablet or computer. If you’re not already a member, it’s quick and easy to join online.

All loans will be extended until Monday 22 February and no overdue or hire charges will be applied during this period.
