Please note: Malpas Library will remain closed until further notice. However, our other libraries have now reopened for browsing and pre-booked computer access. Revised opening hours can be found on the individual library pages.
Every Tuesday from 4pm - 6pm our mobile library will visit the Bishop Heber High School car park. You can return and borrow items on-board one household at a time. Test and trace data will be collected and social distancing guidelines are in place. Face coverings should be worn unless exempt.
Our order and collect service will still be available from selected libraries.
Holds have now resumed and loan periods have been extended until 31 August for Malpas Library. Overdue charges have been suspended during this period. Our libraries are now fine-free for children aged 0 to 12 years so they will no longer be charged for any overdue items.
