In the meantime we’ll continue to bring you virtual services on Facebook and online. This includes digital events as well as digital resources like: e-books, audiobooks and magazines.

Don’t worry about returning items late during this closure period as any charges will be cleared when the items are returned.

Services and facilities

Discover Purbeck Information Centre

Wareham Library now offers additional access as Discover Purbeck Information Centre shares the building. This co-location means that in addition to the library opening hours, library members can access the ground floor area when the Discover Purbeck Information Centre is open, and borrow and return books using the customer self-service machines. During this time the public network computers are unavailable.

Services

The library offers a wide range of services including:

In a world of decreasing resources and increasing needs, the library service needs its friends. Over half the population use public libraries to borrow books and other materials, find information, assist them in educational courses, use the internet or browse and sit and read.
