General Enquiries – 01202 262 421

You can contact a representative from Poole Central Library on their general enquiries telephone number 01202 262 421 to discuss how to borrow a selection of popular books and DVDs. For instance, once you have completed your membership for a library account then you can both reserve any books in person, online or over the phone. Furthermore, the library assistant can detail the return date for a book or BluRay DVD that is currently on loan. Although you can renew your loans both online and over the phone, you may be glad to know that the library has a 24-hour drop-box so that you can return your books when they are closed. Moreover, Poole Central Library has a self-service kiosk to issue or return any items while also avoiding any queues.

Alternatively, if you are interested in the local history of the resort town then you can ask for support when using the microfiche to search the library’s archive of newspapers and documents. Furthermore, the library has free WiFi along with paid printing and photocopying facilities for anyone who would like to use their own laptop rather than a Poole Central computer during their visit. The library has a seminar room for hire meaning that the above number can also be used to make the appropriate booking once you have given details of the dates you need.

The Poole Central Library is also useful for anyone who would like further information on the activities and events that take place at the Dolphin Centre venue. For instance, the library hosts regularly computer drop-in sessions along with citizen’s advice meetings for locals looking for support with a legal issue. Parents may even wish to enrol their child in the library’s homework club which takes place from 3.30pm to 5pm every Monday to Friday.


Cost of Getting in touch

Poole Central Library uses a contact number with a local area code meaning that any callers will only ever be charged the standard per-minute for a geographical phone call made from a UK mobile or landline.

If you wish to contact a representative from Poole Central Library over the telephone then you are best doing so during the opening hours of 9am to 6pm Monday to Saturday as lines are closed on Sundays.
