Specialist Library Services

Our library collections

This service is part of our development to improve our website and can now be found on our new beta website.

As well as an island-wide collection of general interest books, the Library Service also offers several specialist collections. The School Library Service is a subscription service available to island primary schools. Other specialist collections, such as the Music, Maritime and Local Studies collections, are available to anyone. In addition, libraries offer a range of learning opportunities and courses, and stock "Reading Well" collections to help people cope with anxiety, depression and other mental health issues.
