Newcastle Libraries has a brand new Library 2U service, where reading, movies and music can be delivered straight to your door or collected from one of our branches.

If lockdown has you daydreaming about faraway places and you're no longer finding novelty in your usual home entertainment options, why not get lost in new worlds brought to life in books, DVDs, magazines, new music and more. We have a huge selection of items tailored specifically for all ages and interests, so whether you're searching for yourself, a toddler or those a little older you can be sure we'll find you a welcome distraction.

Simply fill in the form or call us on 4974 5300 to select your preferences and our staff will create a hand-picked mix of up to 5 reading, watching and listening options for you. To use this service you must be a library member. Not a member? Join up now.
