There are photocopiers, film, fiche and laser printers in the library. Current copy charges are as follows:

  • Books: 25p (A4) or 50p (A3) per copy
  • Microfilm: 40p per copy
  • Microfiche: 40p per copy
  • CD-ROM: 25p per copy
  • Documents: 30p per copy (to be carried out by staff/volunteers)

Change for coin-boxes can be given at the library enquiry counters.

Digital cameras and other data storage devices such as usb memory sticks may also be used, for which there is a daily charge of £5. Please pay at the library counters.

For all copying, regardless of the device used, the laws of copyright must be obeyed. Briefly these state that no more than 10% of any item or one chapter, whichever is greater, may be copied and only for personal research. Publication of an image in any form, including on the Web, requires permission from the Librarian who can be contacted at
