Changes at our libraries due to coronavirus (COVID-19)
All of our library branches are now open (except Priory Library) but only for order and collect and to use a public access computer for essential purposes, e.g. job applications, benefit claims and to access public services.
Welcome to Barnsley Libraries
Our libraries are a welcoming hub for the community where you can meet, learn, discover and access services. Whether you want to get online, join in with activities and events, borrow a book or need somewhere to study, you're sure to find something for you.
At the heart of our library service is Library @ the Lightbox - a vibrant space where everyone can connect, learn, create and relax. Featuring state-of-the-art technology, this safe and exciting space is part of The Glass Works retail and leisure development transforming Barnsley town centre.
Activities and events
You'll find something for everyone with our range of activities and events; from reader's groups and job clubs to digital story times and virtual reality experiences.
