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.

Over the holiday period we will be closed Saturday December 25, Tuesday December 28 and Saturday January 1st.
