If you have been missing the unique experience of visiting your local library, there's good news.

You can now visit your local Aura library to choose books, use a computer, print and access the photocopier.

Of course things are a little different, for example, to use the computer you will need to make an appointment to visit so they can ensure there is enough room to keep everyone safe. Please phone your local library to make an appointment.

Measures are in place to keep everyone safe in accordance with Welsh Government guidelines. Opening hours for browsing are 9am-noon, and 2pm-5pm. Priority access will be given to vulnerable customers from 9am-10am, and for family groups from 4pm-5pm. Normal opening hours apply for Select and Collect service and returns.

Visits to browse and choose books are currently limited to approximately 15 minutes, and computer sessions are currently limited to 45 minutes, and once per day. You will need your library card with you to borrow books through our self-service machines or to book a computer. You can read Aura's Library User Guide online.

Their Select and Collect service will continue for those who prefer them to choose the books for you to collect or have delivered to you if required (the Home Library Service is making deliveries of books to anyone who is unable to visit their local library and you can collect items from the mobile library - please get in touch to find out more about this service).

Any books on loan are being automatically renewed and you will not be fined. Items can be returned to any library during normal opening hours and placed in the return bins at the entrance.

Remember you can join the library, browse the catalogue and download e-books, e-audiobooks, magazines and newspapers for free. We also have online activities taking place, more information can be found via our Facebook - @LlyfrgelloeddAuraLibraries and Twitter - @LibFlintshire.
