Level 5 Closure

Our libraries are closed until further notice under Level 5 restrictions.

Although our buildings are closed, you can renew your items online and use our online services including ebooks, eaudiobooks and online newspapers at anytime. 

All memberships due to expire in the coming weeks have been extended until 1 July 2021. All items due back have been renewed until 1 July 2021. There are no fines. We hope to see you all safe and well very soon.

eMagazines update

libby 150x150

We would like to advise patrons that we are in the process of changing our supplier of emagazines from RBdigital to Overdrive. From 26 April 2021, emagazines will be available through either the Libby app or through www.libbyapp.com. All library patrons who had an account with RBdigital for emagazines will be informed and guided through the process by email. Please check our Read Online page for future updates, links and FAQ.

Grow it Forward

We have a number of packs available to give away.
