Covid-19 Update: Published 16 July 2020
As part of a phased approach to restarting Library Services in Blaenau Gwent a new Call & Collect Service will be available from Abertillery and Ebbw Vale from 22nd July 2020. For anyone unable to collect from these venues, a contactless home delivery option will be available.
Customers will be able to pre-arrange to collect books and other library stock from these venues safely and in line with the latest Welsh Government guidance on social distancing. The service will initially be trialled in libraries in Abertillery and Ebbw Vale, with a view to extending to other areas if successful. There will also be a home delivery option for those unable to collect.
Customers will be asked to contact the Library Service to pre-arrange either collection or a contactless doorstep delivery.
The service will initially be available between Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm:
- Call Ebbw Vale Library on 01495 355055
- Call Abertillery library on 01495 355646
- E-mail email@example.com
There will be no overdue charges while our libraries are closed and extended loan periods will cover all books.
Don't forget - we offer a free e-book, e-magazine and e-audiobook service which is available online 24/7.

Post Office services at Cwm Library will resume every Tuesday from 10am – 1pm starting from Tuesday 26th May for local residents.
