We regret all of our library events and activities including Storytime, Talk Time, Rhyme Time, Digital Dens and groups are suspended until further notice.

Any items on loan before the first lock-down have been extended until 31 May 2021. There are no fines when the library is closed. 

Our library is free to join and offers a wide range of services - from free access to books, computers, the internet and information to the hire of music, audio books and films.
