Welcome to our Northumberland Libraries Newsletter. We want to keep you informed about all of the exciting ways you can still access your library service.

Don’t forget to check for all our updates. Library Service UpdateOur Select and Collect service is now up and running at Berwick, Blyth, Morpeth and Hexham Libraries.

We’ll be open again soon but meanwhile you can order books from our Select and Collect service by using our online order form or by calling the library. When your books are ready to collect, library staff will arrange a date and time with you to come and pick them up from the library entrance.

You can return any library books you have at home if you wish but there is no rush as all fines have been cancelled due to lockdown.

You won’t be able to come in and browse the books or use public PCs at the moment but we are working hard to make our libraries safe for you to use.  Learn MoreLearning a musical instrument If the guitar is your instrument, check out Pressreader for Bass Magazine, Guitar Techniques, Guitarist or Total Guitar.
