Activities in our libraries

Keep entertained with fun activities across our libraries.


Our libraries are currently closed due to Covid-19 restrictions.

If you are a library member, you can borrow ebooks, eaudiobooks, emagazines, enewspapers and ecomics free of charge.

Fines will not be charged while this is in place, and all books that are currently out on loan will have their return date extended.

See our libraries YouTube playlist with regular content and information.

Holiday activities 

We hold activities, such as craft activities, across our libraries during school holidays.

Regular activities

All our libraries have a range of regular activities for you to enjoy. All are free and cover a range of interests. See each library's page to find out when the sessions are on.

Fun sessions for under-fives to help develop their creativity and literacy skills. Can include storytime, crafts and songtime. No need to book. Term time only.

Sessions for adults which are great if you want to share your love of reading with others. Share your favourite authors, discover new titles and make new friends as you read and review books.

Get Creative

Creative sessions for adults. Bring along a project you've been working on, learn a new craft or pass your skills on to others.
