Library Membership

Latest

Libraries are in the Government’s third phase of easing of the lockdown, currently not before 4 July.

We’re working through plans on how we could safely re-open buildings with social distancing in place, what services we could safely offer, and preparing to make the physical changes to the layouts and facilities in the buildings.

Until we have completed this work, we won’t be in a position to provide a programme for re-opening, but we will let people know as soon as we can. Please check the website for the most up to date information on our plans and available services.
