Update on Library Services

We were excited to re-open our libraries and we are now able to offer a range of services by appointment to ensure your safety.

Our Order and Collect Service has been really popular, and will continue, but if you prefer to come and choose your own books you can now call your local library and arrange a 20 minute appointment to come and browse the shelves. We’ve got lots of new books to choose from.

You can also now make an appointment to use our computers and printing facilities, photocopiers and also get help with Council Services and making payments.

Unlimited magazines from your local library

Over 1200 popular magazines are now available to download and read on any device 24/7 via Libby, the reading app from Overdrive. Just download the Libby app and log in with your library card and PIN.

The magazines have no waiting lists and are available to download immediately. Titles include Good Housekeeping, Hello, New Scientist, Autocar and BBC Gardener’s World.

Reading Well in Libraries

It’s Mental Health Awareness Week 10 - 16 May and our collection of Reading Well titles provide helpful information and support for managing common mental health conditions, or dealing with difficult feelings and experiences.

Some books also include personal stories from people who are living with or caring for someone with mental health needs.

The books are available to borrow from your local library.
