We have 17 libraries, 2 mobiles and a home library service. You can join online and pop in to a library with 2 piece of ID. Check out the Council webpages for full information.

As long as you bring books back on time or you renew them using the library apponline or by phone we don’t charge you anything. There are small charges for borrowing DVDs and CDs.

These are our library opening hours.

You can use the library even if you don’t actually visit by:

  • downloading our ebooks provided by OverDrive,
  • digital magazines provided by Zinio
  • Downloading or streaming from the Sony music collection provided by Freegal
  • Listening to audiobooks provided by OneClickdigital
  • Or using our online reference books

If there’s something you want to read you can check out if we have it in stock using the library app or library online catalogue and we can get it delivered to your local library (no charge for this either).
