Wareham Library opening times and additional access

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.

  • books for adults and young people

  • Rhyme Time and Library Gets Lively sessions

  • feature films and music to hire

  • play set and drama collection

  • reference and information services
