• 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.
