How you can still access library services in Oldham during lockdown

Residents are being reminded that limited services are still available at five libraries across Oldham during the current national lockdown. 

The library in Oldham town centre is open from 10am to 5pm Monday to Saturday. 

The libraries in Failsworth, Lees and Crompton are open from 10am to 2pm Monday to Friday and 10am to 1pm on Saturday. 

The Delph library is open for click and collect only, between 2pm and 5pm Tuesday to Thursday and 10am to 1pm on Saturday. 

Book browsing isn't allowed at any of the five libraries but people can still take out books via a 'click and collect' service for pre-ordered or reserved material, as well as return books. 

Four of the libraries - Oldham, Crompton, Lees and Failsworth - are still offering PC access and printing facilities. 

Library members will be able to use a limited number of public computers for pre-booked one-hour sessions. Slots can be booked by telephoning 0161 770 8000. Free public wifi is also available at these locations. 

Meanwhile, digital drop-in sessions have been moved online, which share resources and create content to support digital skills, and to support access to a wide ranging digital library service including eBooks, newspapers, magazines and online resources for research and learning.
