New! We are beginning to resume limited services in some of our libraries, with limited hours and bookings in place to ensure social distancing.

Many of our libraries now offer bookings for Computer access (1 hour appointments), Book Browsing (15 minute slots to choose books) and Council Customer Services.

Please call your branch to check which services are available and to book appointments. Please note: your branch may not be operating on pre-lockdown hours - if you are unable to reach anyone by phone, please call our library line 01597 827460 or email us on to check availability in your area.
