Our Branches

Due to an upgrade of the lighting system, the Lovett Gallery and Level 2 Local History Library at Newcastle (City) Library will be closed to the public from Monday 7 June to Monday 21 June 2021. Please take all Local History enquiries to the ground floor desk, and our Local History team will be able to assist.
