Libraries service available during Covid-19

In the meanwhile, we are launching a range of alternative library services to eligible residents as follows.

Returning library items
Some residents may have items they need to return to the library that were loaned before libraries were closed.
Starting on Monday 13 July, you can return these items at entrances to Bargoed, Caerphilly and Risca Library using the ‘Return Book Bins’ situated at the library entrances.
Returned items will be cleared from your library account and any fines accrued during the closure will be removed from your account.
Order and collect service
The Caerphilly Library Service are making plans to provide an ‘Order and Collect’ service which is expected to start in August.
Further information will be made available as the plans develop.
The Caerphilly Library Services subscribe to a range of eServices that provide access to a wealth of eBooks, eAudiobooks, eComics and eGraphic novels 24/7, all year round.
Library members can download these at your convenience onto a compatible device.
