Libraries are central to our community. More than just a place to read and borrow books, libraries have transformed over the years into vibrant community hubs, offering everything from free WIFI and computer access to a range of family and social events, business support and educational classes.

With 36 local libraries located across the county, everyone and anyone is invited to join their local library and find out more about what’s on offer.
