The library has moved on! We still do the books bit, ensuring we always have the very latest titles, but we do so much more. 

The overall aim of Stockton Libraries and Community Information Service is to provide a quality, relevant, accessible and modern service which is responsive to the needs and lifestyles of the users it aims to serve 

Each of our libraries exist to serve the community and provide a welcoming environment, open and free to all. You will discover reading groups for all ages, fun activities for children and families, a youth zone with gaming workshops, homework clubs, support sessions, local history studies, basic ICT training and all of our libraries have free internet access, with free Wi-Fi in a number of branches, Our library events run throughout the year and there's something for everyone. 

Digital War Memorial  

The Digital War Memorial is a project led by the Society of Chief librarians. It brings together a wide range of communities to work with high quality artists to create their own unique creative response to the First World War Centenary. Using the rich resources of local libraries and archives as the starting point, the new artworks tell diverse stories of how the First World War touched people‚Äôs lives and how it is remembered today. From 2014 to 2018 we hope to see projects across the whole country that will cumulate into a truly national memorial for our times.
