Gateshead Libraries

Libraries are autism friendly and library staff are on hand to help you.

Libraries have lots of books and audiobooks to borrow. The Central Library hires CDs and DVDs for a charge. Once you’ve joined, you can download eBooks and eAudiobooks without visiting a library.

Libraries can help you find information and advice on events, activities and health, or signpost you to local services.

You can use the public computers in each library using your library card and PIN number. You can access the Internet and use office applications. There is no charge but you do have to pay for printouts.
