For up to date information we advise checking your local library’s opening times before making a trip Library Locations & Opening Hours

Library Community Access Points

Due to national restrictions all Community Access Points are currently suspended until further notice. 


Gloucestershire Library Service is introducing Community Access points in selected locations from January 2020. There will be a small range of books to browse and borrow and customers will also be able to return books and collect any items they have reserved.   These locations will be reviewed after a period of 6 months to ensure they are serving the needs of customers.

If you wish to reserve items to collect at these points Search for a Book

There will be other access points set up in the coming months, so please return to this page to find updated details as they go live.
