Ballymena Central Library

A Return to Browsing in all Local Libraries

Libraries NI is pleased to announce that local libraries will reopen for browsing and access for study facilities from Monday 24 May.
To keep everyone safe, customers will be asked to wear a mask and to use hand sanitiser when they enter the library. Staff will also wear masks and there are both screens and signage throughout each library to encourage social distancing.
The Book and Collect Service will continue to operate in all libraries and will remain in place at this stage. This service is also supported by Libraries NI’s popular online resources providing free access to eBooks, audiobooks, eMagazines and eNewspapers.

Additional notice - please read

Due to the current maintenance work being carried out in Pat’s Brae access is unavailable to Ballymena Central Library for Book Returns. Your nearest libraries include Broughshane, Kells and Connor and Portglenone. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Please note that the Book and Collect stopped on Saturday 10 July at the Libraries NI Regional Administration Centre.
