Library response to the Coronavirus
We have closed all our libraries, including the mobile library, since Monday 23rd March 2020, to protect visitors and staff from the risk of Covid-19/Coronavirus.
We cannot guarantee maintaining a safe service for staff and visitors within the buildings, alongside the need for everyone to follow social distancing safety guidelines.
We will review the closure regularly.
Any library member who has items on loan will not receive any penalty charges, and all items will be automatically renewed until libraries re-open.
We will continue to offer a range of online services that can be accessed by visiting our eresources section
