During national lockdown our libraries are closed to the public.

However, Billingham, Norton, Stockton, Thornaby Central and Yarm libraries will offer an ‘order and collect/return at the door’ service, Monday to Friday from 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 4.30pm.

You can either choose titles or genres from our online catalogue or call one of these libraries to request your books. They will let you know when your books are ready for collection at the door.
