Do you have an overdue library book?

Amnesty for overdue library books ends soon!

During the pandemic, North Tyneside Libraries didn’t charge fines for overdue books as they understood customers wouldn’t be able to return them. Please note that fines will be re-introduced from 4 October 2021.

Until then, there is a fines amnesty – take any library item back, no matter how overdue it is, and you won’t be charged a fine. So check your shelves, cupboards and bags for overdue items, the library needs them back!

Look out for regular library activities, room hire and events re-starting over the next few weeks. For the latest updates, check at your local library or visit us regularly at
