Libraries closed across Cheshire East

Cheshire East Council took the decision to close all libraries, including the mobile library, from Monday 23rd March, to protect visitors and staff from the risk of Covid-19/Coronavirus. Libraries cannot guarantee maintaining a safe service for staff and visitors within the buildings, alongside the need for everyone to follow social distancing safety guidelines. The closure will be reviewed 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 homepage

Opening hours

Please note, the Customer Service enquiry desk and the People's Network public computers close down 15 minutes before the library closing time.
