We are currently implementing a new library system and there may be some disruption to current services during this transition phase.

From Monday 17th July 2017 we will begin the next phase of the changeover of the library system.

This will mean that some of the online facilities you are familiar with may not be available for a couple of days such as renewing books online or placing requests.

Please note the Find IT search will remain available throughout the transition.

For those of you who use the “Reading History” option, we recommend you make a copy for your records of your reading history from our current system. They will not be transferred over to the new system.

We ask for your patience during this transition phase.

For further assistance, please contact us at or 4042203 or call in to the library [open 09:15 – 17:00] and we will be happy to assist.
