Shap Library Link

Revised Cumbria Library services

Welcome back to Cumbria Libraries for browsing, borrowing and PC access. 

With the easement of some government restrictions, from the 19th July some changes have been made in our libraries. To find out more please visit Coronavirus (COVID-19) update for libraries and archives | Cumbria County Council

We are still offering a Select and Collect service as well as our existing home delivery service.

Activities, in-person groups and sessions will be gradually reintroduced although we still have plenty of resources available for you to enjoy.  Live streaming of children's events are posted on each Library's Facebook page, as well as a range of book reviews and activity suggestions. Our online services include free e-books and e-magazines.
