Precinct Library

Precinct Library will close for the final time at 8pm on Friday, 7 December, and the Eddie Davies Library will open at 9am on Wednesday, 2 January 2019.

Library customers are asked to borrow books in advance of the closure as there will be no access to print books, journals or our specialist database PCs during our move; however all our online resources will still be available.
