Covid-19 Response


Announcement: Tameside Library Service during Tier 4 restrictions in force from 31 December 2020.

From Monday 4 January 2021 Tameside Library buildings will not be open for general use and browsing – however you will be able to return items or collect pre-ordered books at the Library entrance. In addition all online services and the Home Library Service will continue. There will also be strictly managed access to public PCs in library buildings to assist with essential activity such as job applications, benefit claims and digital access to other public services.

We have a range of online services and digital events on offer but due to Covid-19 guidelines there are currently no events or activities taking place in libraries. For full details of revised current services and facilities, please see our Libraries 
homepage and social media.


Covid-19 Response - Click and Collect

As part of the phased re-opening of Tameside Libraries, we have introduced a Click and Collect service for borrowing books and talking books for those customers who are not able to log in to their account or use the mobile app to select and reserve loans. As reservations are now working, please use this method if you are able.

Further details on Click and Collect.



Search the catalogue
You can search our library catalogue by author, title or subject you will be able to see everything from books and spoken word to eBooks and eAudiobooks. Tameside Libraries is a member of the Greater Manchester Library Consortium so you can search for anything across all libraries, or just in Tameside. Ask at any Tameside Library for details of how you can use your card in other Greater Manchester Libraries.

Use the search box at the top or topic filters at the side to find your favourites, or just browse. The catalogue will show whether the item is in stock, which libraries have copies and whether they are available to borrow.
