Needham Market Oct’18

Needham Market Library update


Needham Market in school street is open Tuesday to Sunday and offers a wide range of services and activities for everyone in the local area.


As well as books you can borrow DVDs and CDs, use our free Wi-Fi and book a computer to access the internet if you don’t have a computer at home. The library also offers printing and scanning facilities – very useful if you need to print tickets or boarding passes when going away!


Many people don’t realise that you can search and reserve items from the entire Suffolk Libraries catalogue and pick them up from Needham Market Library – so you’re not just limited to what’s on our shelves.


Needham Market Library is open six days a week. After a consultation with customers, the library also recently changed its opening hours which the changes designed to better meet the needs of local people.  The new opening hours came into effect from June and are as follows:
