The Library Service offers a very wide range of materials. Some of these are free to borrow, while others carry a small hire charge which are outlined in our Fines and Charges leaflet below.
- If you’re aged 11 and over, you can borrow any 30 items from our range of books, audio books, CDs and DVDs
- If you’re under 11, you can borrow 20 items
Age restrictions are observed on DVDs according to their certification.
If you are a registered childminder, run a playgroup or residential home, or you are housebound, special arrangements can be made for you. Just ask at your local library, where staff will be happy to help.
How long can I keep my items?
Once you have chosen your items, you will be normally be able to keep them out for either four weeks or one week, depending on what you’ve chosen.
Four week loans: books, talking books, recorded music and language packs
Please note: if another borrower has reserved an item, we will only be able to issue it to you for two weeks, instead of four
- Three week loans: e-audiobook downloads
- One week loans: DVDs. These items cannot be renewed, but you are welcome to bring them to the library and pay the extra hire charge to borrow them for another week
