Wareham Library opening times and additional access

Wareham Library now offers additional access as Discover Purbeck Information Centre shares the building.  This co-location means that in addition to the library opening hours, library members can access the ground floor area when the Discover Purbeck Information Centre is open, and borrow and return books using the customer self-service machines.  During this time the public network computers are unavailable.

In adverse weather conditions or other circumstances there may be a library closure. Find out if this library is affected (opens in a new window).
