Torfaen Libraries

PLEASE NOTE - We are currently upgrading our library management system and customers may find some of our services are limited during the week beginning 18 March 2019.

The catalogue and online access to library accounts may be affected between 18 and 25 March, although customers can contact any Torfaen library during this time to renew items.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.


Torfaen Libraries has a great deal to offer – whatever your interests!

As you’d expect, you’ll find a great selection of books. Whether you need to study, learn a new skill, revise for an exam or just want to curl up in bed with the latest bestseller, we’ve got what you're looking for! You’ll also find books in large print and talking books on CD and in MP3 format.

Every library has computer facilities so you can surf the net, send an e-mail, or use word processing and spread sheet facilities - free of charge! You only have to pay for printouts. Job seekers and benefit claimants are entitled to free printouts and photocopies within reason when conducting related business.

Every library has a great selection of DVDs and CDs for loan. These can all be borrowed for up to a week at very reasonable charges.

Alongside more traditional reference books, you can find information on your rights and discover the world of information available on the web. We’ll do our best to help you find the information you want!

Babies and children are welcome too! You’ll find a great range of books for every age from baby through to young adult. Children can also use ICT facilities and come along to special activities and events. All libraries offer homework support including free print outs within reasonable use.

It’s free to join! Just bring along proof of your name and address and you can borrow up to 20 books for 3 weeks. You can also borrow up to 5 DVDs and 5 CDs. You can keep these for up to a week, but remember that loan charges apply to these. Alternatively, you can Join the Library Service online.
