Changes at Felling, Rowlands Gill and Whickham Libraries

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

  • You will need a new library ticket to use the volunteer-run library, allowing you to borrow books only at this library.
  • Your existing Gateshead Council library ticket will continue 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 will continue to get a good range of new books, selected by the library service.
  • You will be able to reserve books that are held by the volunteer-run libraries in Felling, Rowlands Gill and Whickham. This will extend to include Dunston, Low Fell, Ryton and Winlaton libraries later this year, hopefully by the end of October.
  • 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 will need to be taken back to the same library.
  • Volunteer-run libraries will have the same fees and charges as Council operated libraries, with the exception of the computer subscription.
  • If you have subscribed to the computer service, your subscription information will be passed on to the volunteer-run library and your current subscription will be valid in all libraries in Gateshead. Once your current subscription has expired, you will need to pay a separate charge to use the computer service at the volunteer-run library.

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