From May 29 2018 the music CD service will be withdrawn completely from all libraries.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 (withdrawn from Outer West, Gosforth, West End, Fenham and East End Libraries)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.

Health and wellbeing
Reading Well Books on Prescription is a national scheme run with a number of GP surgeries in Newcastle, where GPs 'prescribe' books that help you manage your mental wellbeing for a range of common mental health conditions including anxiety, depression, phobias and some eating disorders. Find out more about Reading Well Books on Prescription.
As well as a wide range of books, there is useful website information, leaflets and a set of self help booklets. For more information, visit the health and wellbeing page.
