Bellingham Library is a small branch library with an entrance to the rear of the Town Hall.
Did you know we have free online resources that are available for all library members to use? Some of these resources can only be used in the library like Ancestry or British Newspaper Archive. But some are even available for you to use at home like Theory Test Pro if you are doing your driving theory test or Britannica Library if you need help with some research.
Wednesday : 10am – 1pm & 2pm – 5pm
Friday : 10am – 1pm & 2pm – 5pm
Below are pictures taken from inside the new Bellingham Library located at the back of the Hall. There are already good comments regarding its efficient layout, freshly painted walls, functional IT Suite and accessibility compared to its last location.
We are developing a closer working relationship with the village with examples including a history talk at the start of the year.
Integrating Bellingham Library into the Hall was managed by Northumberland County Council representatives with piecemeal negotiations with Bellingham Town Hall Chair Edwin Wilkinson that would be beneficial to the Council’s spending programme.
The Committee agreed that progress would be sought in making regular use of the Hall and therefore providing a steady revenue stream.
Lesley Archer, seen opposite, has already provided a stellar service to the village seeking out specific reads for Bellingham and District bookworms as well as being informative towards the many varied requirements in using the Internet, Office programs and the odd bit of advice regarding job searching, sourcing information and the already late homework!
Both Edwin and Councillor John Riddle seen opposite share optimism in the initiative between the local service in cohesion with a community building – some may say this is relative of the idea of ‘Localism’ or to be more specific it is in the interest of the public for the benefit of the public.
