Cumbria Libraries locations and opening times

The Government has announced new restrictions covering all of Cumbria from 31 December 2020.

In line with government guidance, our libraries will be closed for browsing and general access. However we will continue to operate a Select and Collect service for books and hearing aid batteries; provide online services; run the home delivery service; provide access to library premises to support community learning and skills classes; and facilitate digital access for those with essential needs. 

Essential PC use available at selected Cumbria Libraries

Libraries are permitted, by a Government exemption, to offer library members access to the public PC network for essential use if they can't otherwise access a PC/laptop or the internet. Essential needs can include job applications, benefit applications, accessing public services, financial information, online banking, for educational purposes, to keep in touch with family members or to support their mental health.

Booking is essential if you wish to use this service: please contact the libraries below between the times specified to book your 45 minute slot. We regret you will not be able to just turn up without a booking.

  • To ensure social distancing that there will be a limited number of PCs and time slots available
  • PCs will be booked into slots to allow cleaning time in between each customer, but the actual session time is 45 minutes
  • Printing will be available at the usual costs
  • Please note that library staff will be unable to offer any support in using PCs - this is to ensure social distancing and everyone's safety
  • We regret that library members will be unable to access any other service apart from PC use while they are in the library building and you will be asked to leave the building straight after your allotted time.
