Penrith Library

Revised Cumbria Library services

In line with government guidance, our libraries are closed for browsing and general access. However we will continue to operate a Select and Collect service for books and hearing aid batteries; run the home delivery service; and provide pre-booked 45 minute appointments to PCs for those with essential needs.

Our online services available to all library members includes e-book and e-magazines whilst the The Library Edit highlights some great websites and online resources - all chosen by library staff, and helpfully grouped by theme, so if you have not tried them don't miss out.
