From May 29 2018 the music CD service will be withdrawn completely from all libraries.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 (withdrawn from Outer West, Gosforth, West End, Fenham and East End Libraries)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.
Phone: 0191 277 4100
Limited free on-street parking available.
This library is autism friendly see user guide (pdf, 1.91mb).
Tuesday: 9:30am - 5pm
Thursday: 9:30am - 5pm
Saturday: 10am - 1pm
Please note: the public computers are automatically turned off 15 minutes before closing time.
If we are not open remember you can renew and reserve items, chat to a librarian and access other helpful resources on the online 24 Hour Library.

About High Heaton Library
You can borrow books and have free access to information, newspapers, magazines, and computers and serve yourself at our self-service terminals. The children's area has a bright fun look and is partitioned from the adult area by a glass screen upon which local artist Kathryn Hodgkinson has etched designs inspired by the memorial trees in the Spinney. Customers can relax and meet friends over a cup of coffee or tea available from a vending machine. There really is something for everyone.
