Library services for 5 to 11 year olds
As part of our plans to re-open library services, we won't automatically renew items on loan from Monday 21 June.
From 21 June you will need to renew your items or return them every 3 weeks. DVDs will need to be returned every 7 days. This will help us to reduce waiting times for popular items.
We are not currently charging fines for the late return of items.
Find out about our online events and join us for STEM Club, LEGO Club, crafts, storytimes and more.
If you need help with your homework, you can email libraries online help with your questions and we’ll recommend some good resources to help.
