There are 31 libraries in Dorset, some of which are managed by the community. They vary in opening hours, with some offering evening and weekends in addition to daily sessions.
Browse miles of books, surf the internet and work in comfortable spaces. Libraries provide far more than a book service with hire of DVDs, audio books, e-books, magazines, newspapers and e-comics. You can search for your family history, use the reference resources, access adult learning courses and home education resources. Many also host events, courses and social activities; from knitting groups, children’s activities, reading groups, IT support, learning computer skills and Citizens Advice centres. Some have community rooms to hire or have other organisations based with them such as the Registrations Service, Ansbury Careers Advice or Tourist Information.
Some libraries provide a range of specific services for older people and people with disabilities and sensory impairment. Some libraries offer a mobile service.
