Books and reading
The library catalogue is a great place to search for reading ideas. You’ll find lists of new books coming to our libraries soon, as well as popular collections including books to help your health and wellbeing, Story Sacks and Reminiscence kits.
Search the library catalogue
If we don't have what you are looking for, you can make a suggestion for titles to be added to our stock.
Send us a book review
You can add a book review and star rating to the library catalogue for books, films and music that you’ve borrowed. Visit the homepage of the catalogue to login to your account – you’ll need your library card number and PIN. Search for the item you would like to review or give a star rating to – click on the title and select "Add your review".
Donate books to the library
We're happy to accept donations of books if they are:
- In new condition
- Less than three years old
We also welcome older items of local interest.
All items are examined by library staff and distributed to where they're most needed so we can't promise to place donated items in specific libraries.
If we decide that your donations can't be added to our collections, we may sell them. All proceeds will be used to improve our services.
If we're unable to accept your donations you could take them to charity shops or second-hand bookshops instead.
