All Barnsley library branches are currently closed
Due to COVID-19 (coronavirus) all of our library branches are currently closed until further notice.
You can still access our range of eBooks, eAudio and digital magazines online.
From stories and novels to factual publications, our collection of fiction and non-fiction paperback and hardback books is complemented by hundreds of eBooks and eAudio titles online.
Books are only the beginning of what's on offer; a range of engaging activities and events take place in our libraries for people of all ages. These include story and rhyme, code club and readers' groups, alongside more specialised sessions such as our music and memories group supported by Alzheimer's Society, for people with dementia and their carers.
Borrowing books and reading
There's thousands of books to choose from at our libraries, so you're sure to find one you just can't put down.
You can find, reserve and request titles online, or see how to get involved with your local reading group.
We have a range of books for children and young people in our libraries, from babies to teens.
It's never too early to get into reading and develop a life-long love of books.
Story and rhyme sessions
Our story and rhyme sessions include a range of activities for babies and toddlers up to age four.
Come along and join in at your local library.
Interactive light experiences
The Events Room at Library @ the Lightbox is where our engaging and interactive light experiences take place for people with dementia, autism or learning difficulties.
A range of interactive games stimulate physical and mental activity in a playful and fun atmosphere.
See the light show by booking a place at one of our light experience events.
