Following the government advice given on March 16th the trustees have regretfully decided that the library will close for normal business from 9.00 am Tuesday March 17th.
Thank you for your support in making the library a fantastic hub for the community and for contributing to keeping it going.
Fines on any outstanding loans will be waived.
We will reopen as soon as it may be possible. In the meantime take care and stay safe.

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.
