Libraries opening times

Library order & collect service

Cheshire East Libraries are not currently open for general use but you can use our free Order & Collect service. How to use your local library Order & Collect service: 

  • Ring or email your local library with the details. Please note that library staff will be available for limited hours only (see below)
  • Provide your library card number as well as your contact details
  • Provide a brief description of the number and type of books you require. Please be aware that the availability of books is limited to what is on the library shelves. Regrettably specific book requests can’t be placed at this time

The library staff will choose books for you up to a maximum of 8 each time. They will issue them to your library card and arrange a collection time with you. You can also return books when you come to collect.

Please wear a face covering when collecting your books.

Temporary closure of Bollington Library

Please note, Bollington Library will be closed for 2 weeks from Thursday 18 February, whilst essential building work is being carried out. There will be no access to the library during this period so the Order and Collect service will be suspended until the library opens on Thursday 4 March. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Opening times

If you need library information or to renew your books outside of opening hours you can ring the 24 hour telephone line on 0300 123 7739 or use the Cheshire Libraries Catalogue. Renewing or reserving items online requires your library card number and Personal Identification Number (PIN). Telephone renewals do not require a PIN.

Please note: The Customer Services enquiry desk for blue badges, concessionary travel, benefits and other council enquiries, closes fifteen minutes before the library's actual closing time.

The public computers also close fifteen minutes before closing time.
