Changes at Felling, Rowlands Gill and Whickham Libraries

Following the implementation of the library review Felling, Rowlands Gill and Whickham Libraries have ceased Council operation, and reopened on Monday 10th July 2017 operated by volunteers. The Council works in partnership with the volunteer associations to provide these libraries.

  • You need a separate library ticket to use each volunteer-run library, allowing you to borrow books only at that library.
  • Your existing Gateshead Council library ticket continues to work in the 8 remaining Council libraries (Birtley, Blaydon, Central, Chopwell, Crawcrook, Leam Lane, Pelaw and Wrekenton). It will not work in any of the other volunteer-run libraries.
  • Each volunteer-run library continues to get a good range of new books, selected by the library service.
  • You can reserve books held by a volunteer-run library (Dunston, Felling, Low Fell, Rowlands Gill, Ryton, Whickham or Winlaton) at any other volunteer-run library.
  • If you need a book that is not held by a volunteer-run library, then you will need to borrow it from or reserve it at a Gateshead Council Library.
  • Books borrowed from a volunteer-run library need to be taken back to the same library.
  • Volunteer-run libraries have the same fees and charges as Council operated libraries, except that, in some cases, the volunteer libraries charge a computer subscription.
  • If you joined the computer service at one of these three libraries while it was Council-run, your subscription information was passed to the volunteer-run library and your current subscription was valid in all libraries in Gateshead. Once your current subscription expires, you may need to pay a charge to use the computer service at the volunteer-run library.

Please see the individual page for each library for its opening hours.
