The collection at Bryanston Library consists of adult fiction and non-fiction, young adult fiction and non-fiction, junior fiction and non-fiction plus a large print of books. There is a collection of references for both adults and children. The audio-visual collection consists of CDs for adult and junior books read onto discs. This is a new service available at Bryanston Library: Tape aids for Blind are sponsoring 20 adult and 20 children audiobooks on CD in MP3 format. They will swap these books every 2 months.

      1. Hi. I just went to the library and they would not join me. They said I had to do it online and sent me away.

        1. Hi Cheryl
          Apologies for that miscommunication. Yes membership can be done online, but we normally also show our library users HOW to join on line , because you can even use your smart phone if there is WIFI or data.
          We have also responded to your email regarding block loans.

          Happy reading

      There are selected libraries that open during exams but we always announce on our Facebook page and on this website, if and when certain libraries are open on Saturdays during exams. WE have not yet made that announcement. It is usually June and December exams, but please keep checking our social media and website for updates.
