Newspapers and magazines


Our libraries will be closed on 29 July 2016 due to staff consultation. Items due back on 29 July are now due on 5 August. The E-library is available when we’re closed.

Celebrate at Seaford. Join us on 28 July 2016 at 3pm for an inspiring event about Peter Yarwood’s artistic bench.

Library members have free access to our subscriber-only newspaper websites in libraries and from home. You’ll need your library card number and PIN to sign in.
