Libraries 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.

Phased re-opening of libraries

We began a phased re-opening of our libraries in July. Opening hours are restricted as below, and there are limited services available. Covid-19 secure measures are in place to make each of our libraries as safe as possible. For further information about available services please visit your library's web page.

Dates for Prestbury and the Mobile library to re-open will be announced when confirmed.
