Whether in the car or busy around the house, there’s always time for a good book.

Audio books are available free of charge if you have difficulty in reading or holding an ordinary book.


You can borrow audio-visual items on production of a valid North Yorkshire County Council library ticket. Ask staff about joining.


A small hire fee is charged for a one-week loan of most items. Audio books and language courses are loaned for longer. But remember, you will be asked to pay for a further loan period if you bring them back late.


Not all items are available at every library but you do have access to them through the reservation system. Reserving audio-visual items is free of charge and they will be sent to your local library for you to collect.


Regular borrowers may wish to take advantage of our annual subscription scheme. Ask staff for details.
