Opening Hours and Service

Libraries are open for public browsing and computer access. To check your local library opening hours, and services on offer please check Library Locations and Opening Hours. Owing to restrictions some services may be a little different in the coming months, and some continue to be suspended but we are working hard to recover and resume services when it is appropriate to do so and this website will be updated regularly.
