Joining and using the library

Price List

Charges and sales

First the good news - you have a statutory right to a free library service, so nearly all borrowing and computer use is free.

Reservations, requests and inter-library loans are also free, though we reserve the right to charge for inter-library loans if customers need a lot of them.

More good news - no overdue charges! But to keep it this way depends on the good will of our customers - please return your loans by the due date.

For the charges we do make, we can take card payments but there is a minimum charge of £3 - so please make sure you have some cash with you to pay for smaller amounts.
