All smaller libraries are currently closed until further notice. We are working to make them safe and ready. We don’t have a timescale for when they will reopen but will keep you updated.

A fines amnesty is in place which means that there will be no charges for overdue materials for the time being and books will be automatically renewed. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
