All of our eResources are still available, our website has full details of our eBooks, eAudiobooks, eComics and eMagazines.

The Central, Hamilton and Fosse libraries remain closed, as some of our staff team are supporting Covid measures in the city. Book loans for these libraries have now been extended until 28 July.
