Jesmond Library

Jesmond Library is a community library, being one of over 500 such libraries in the country. It is housed in a unique grade 2 listed building and is home to a wide range of books which is regularly updated.

We are a voluntary organisation run by Trustees and other volunteers and provide a focal point for the local community and the Jesmond Festival. We hold a number of events every week, details of which are on our website.

Please do call in to see what we have to offer. You can be sure of a warm welcome.

Join the Friends of Jesmond Library community

The Friends of Jesmond Library was set up in 2013. It is run entirely by volunteers, and as well as a free library service it offers a wide variety of events and activities for all sections of the community. We need to raise £30,000 a year to remain open.
