From borrowing the latest bestseller to delving into your family history, Market Harborough Library has it all.

With an ICT suite, local history information and learning rooms, there is something for everyone.

There are books, talking books, and DVDs available to borrow. To see what is available please take a look at the Leicestershire Libraries catalogue. Books can also be renewed and requested via the catalogue.
