Libraries opening times

Our libraries are now open for browsing and borrowing, and you can place holds on items. Computer use and the Customer Service Desk (Blue Badge, Benefits, Railcards) are available by appointment only. Opening hours are limited, as advertised below.

We will continue to offer an order and collect service for those of you who don’t feel ready to come in to the library just yet.

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.

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.
