Gateshead Libraries news
Due to the new government restrictions book browsing will not be possible in our libraries from Thursday 5th November. However, some library services are still available.
We have missed having visitors at our libraries and although things are going to be different, we are pleased to announce that the following libraries will be re-opening from Monday 7th September with revised opening times.
Celebrating the excellent work of UK local government library staff supporting their communities in creative ways during the COVID-19 epidemic
Gateshead Archive recognises how important it is to capture a record of the Covid-19 pandemic in Gateshead. We want to collect and preserve materials about the pandemic's effect on the Gateshead Borough.
We are delighted to announce that Gateshead Council has been awarded nearly £500,000 from the National Lottery to improve access to our excellent but underused local history collection at Gateshead Central Library.
