Big plans for great experiences



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.

We are here to serve the community and provide a welcoming environment, open and free to all. We have reading groups for all ages, fun activities for children and families, homework clubs, support sessions, local history studies, basic ICT training and all of our libraries have free internet access, with free WiFi in a number of branches, our library events run throughout the year with something for everyone.

Stockton Reading Challenge

Running until Sunday 31 December 2017, it's fun and easy to get involved. All you need to do is borrow and read one book from each of the 12 categories, that's just over 1 book a month. The categories are fun and flexible, and there's no set reading list, so you choose the books that you want to read. 

For more information, take a look at our Stockton Reading Challenge page.
