March 23, 2020
Library Alert : All libraries closed to the public from 12 noon today until further notice
Effective: 23 Mar 2020 to 1 May 2020
All libraries will be closed to the public from 12 noon today until further notice.
Northumberland County Council will now be moving the library service to a fully digital and online offer, with requests for books to be facilitated via community groups wherever possible, including assisting the most vulnerable residents e.g. large print requests etc. Libraries will also move to provide a telephone befriending service, including doorstep deliveries which our community fleet will assist with.
They are also preparing further digital and online content, and supporting and helping to coordinate any community offering that is needed through a volunteer programme – further details will be announced over the coming days.
Customers can find a range of audio, ebooks and magazines via the BorrowBox and RB Digital apps, which can be downloaded from the library website – www.mylibrary.co.uk
