Warm Spaces at libraries

Each week many of our local libraries are offering residents a free hot drink in a safe and supportive Warm Space.

Loan amnesty ahead of new 'assumed lost' policy

From 1 April 2023, if a library item you've borrowed is overdue by more than 49 days – or 35 days for DVDs and music CDs – we will assume it's lost and charge the cost of replacing it to your account. To avoid this, renew the item before it's due for return, or return it on time. If you return the item later and it's still in good condition, we'll remove the cost of replacement will only charge for the late return.
