Libraries offer a wide range of digital and print resources, including books, information, e-books, online resources and free access to PCs and Wi-Fi. They are also a gateway to an extensive programme of community and cultural events and exhibitions.

We work with a wide range of partners to offer services that encourage independence and wellbeing, enabling people to do more for themselves, while supporting more vulnerable residents. We offer something for all age groups, from birth onward and are relevant to many different life stages.

Much of the work we do is concerned with prevention and wellbeing within communities through our outreach teams, providing resources to housebound residents, engaging with schools and offering opportunities for residents to access cultural events and community activities.
