Libraries Update:

In line with government regulations we are beginning to reopen our libraries from Monday 12th April. Owton Manor Library within Community Hub South will continue to offer a Click and collect service and limited access to the Peoples Network.

Seaton Carew Library is open Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 10am - 3pm.

In line with government guidance you will be required to wear a face covering when visiting our buildings.
