In addition, a ‘click and collect’ service will operate from Shildon Sunnydale Leisure Centre, allowing customers to reserve books online for collection on Mondays between 9.30am and 5pm.

Library cards are valid for use in all Durham County Council libraries so customers can return, borrow or renew books at any Durham County Council library, including those at Woodhouse Close, Coundon, Bishop Auckland Town Hall and Newton Aycliffe.

All libraries offer computer facilities, which can be booked online at

Books can also be reserved or renewed online.

The library will reopen at 10am on Tuesday, 2 January.
