From May 29 2018 the music CD service will be withdrawn completely from all libraries.
In addition to this, the DVD service will operate from City Library only. (withdrawn from Outer West, Gosforth, West End, Fenham and East End Libraries)
This is due to falling loans and income in both areas over recent years, and as a self-financing service this has become unsustainable in its current form.
DVDs can be reserved from any of our libraries or online for a 50p charge.
