Great news, from 12 April the majority of our libraries will re-open with a change to facilities and services.

  • Visit the library to browse the shelves and choose your own books (please come alone or with members of your household / support bubble only)
  • Request items using our Click & Collect service, collecting your item with a pre-booked appointment.
  • Overdue charges will not apply.
  • You can reserve (place holds) on books and choose a collection library free of charge. Where reservation fees show on your account, the charges will be removed by the following day. Please note charges may different for County libraries and it is always best to check their website.
    All items issued to Nottingham City Library members have been renewed to: 1 July 2021

To find books, audiobooks, DVDs, music CDS, magazines, journals, newspapers and other items held in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire libraries search our online catalogue.

During national lockdown, you will be able to place reservations at the available Nottingham City Libraries via the online catalogue or if the book you’d like is at one of our available libraries and you can collect from there by filling it in on a Click & Collect form.

We will not be able to take requests for Inter-Library Loans.
