Did you know...?

You can use other libraries to find information.
 
 
You can join Cumbria Libraries and have access to books and other resources eg at Carlisle Main Library in the Lanes.
Go to the website for more information or pop in and ask at the front desk.  They can also give you information about inter-library loans. If you are a member you can search the library catalogue online.
 
 
 
Members of the public can use the University Library at Fusehill Street.  Check out the website to see opening times.  Sixth formers will need to speak to the librarian and sign a visitors' book.  The library staff will be able to help with any queries.  You will not be able to borrow any of the resources but you may photocopy any relevant material (copyright restrictions and charges will apply.)
