National Lockdown

Roadmap for reintroducing in-person library services. Services may differ per library. Learn more on our Covid-19 updates page.

Library Extra Sessions are kindly run by library volunteers and in light of the current crisis some volunteers have selected not to continue with their regular volunteering commitments at this time. The health and wellbeing of our volunteers is important to us so the decision is to pause these sessions.

With this in mind, the Library Extra sessions will not run at this library for the foreseeable future.

We do hope you can visit the library during our general opening hours or alternatively you can access a wide range of services here online, such as reviewing your loans or reserving items. In addition, you can also borrow audiobooks, ebooks, eMagazines via the library catalogue.

You can also renew your books and other items by phoning 0345 155 1001. 

Thank you for your understanding and we will update you when the Library Extra Sessions resume.

New arrivals
