Coronavirus (COVID-19): updates and advice

[object Object] symbol
Planning for library re-opening

We know you have missed using your local library, so we are delighted to be providing an order and collect service from 8 July, following government advice. The re-opening plans, putting the safety of our customers and employees first, enable customers to order their preferred categories of books and other items to collect at an allocated time. We’re all excited about returning to some normality, although things will obviously be very different for a while!

Our much-loved virtual services will continue on Facebook and online, including digital events as well as digital resources like: e-books, audiobooks and magazines.
