WE ARE OPEN!
Opening hours are reduced to begin with so keep everyone safe:
MONDAYS: 10AM – 12 NOON
THURSDAYS: 2PM – 4PM
Services will also be limited:
• USE OF THE PUBLIC COMPUTERS – please email or phone 0191 2843254 (during opening hours) to book a slot – the slots are on the hour (10am and 11am Mondays; 2pm and 3pm Thursdays) but limited to 45 minutes, so equipment can be cleaned between users.
If you call out of hours, please leave a message, including your contact number, so we can call you back on the next working day
• “CHOOSE AND COLLECT” – books for loan must be chosen only from our online catalogue – click on the image below to open the catalogue.
You can borrow up to six books. Let us know your choice by email or phone, then call to collect during our opening times.*
• BOOK RETURNS – If you have borrowed books, please place them in a plastic carrier bag, and include a note advising your member number/name. Place the bag in our Book Returns crate, which will be available in the library, during opening hours. Returned books will be quarantined for 72 hours before processing & reissue.
• PRINTING, BROWSING & REFRESHMENT SERVICES – will unfortunately be unavailable, initially, but we hope to reintroduce these soon.
Contact us if you would like to register for our “Books to your Doorstep” home delivery service.
When visiting the library, please wear a face covering, use hand sanitiser on arrival and observe distancing guidance. In order to comply with Government guidance to support NHS Test & Trace system, you will also be asked to provide updated contact details.
NOT A MEMBER? – you can call in and sign up to be a member, email us or telephone during our public opening hours. Our library is not part of the Newcastle City Libraries Service – we are a volunteer-run community library, with separate (free) membership.
