Libraries in Wrexham are due to close their Click and Collect service as part of the Welsh Government Circuit Break.
However as a library member you can still access and enjoy 1,000’s of books and audiobooks via uLibrary, BorrowBox and our online services portal.
uLibrary and BorrowBox – free e-books and e-audio books

BorrowBox, much like uLibrary is app based and can be used on Apple, Android and Kindle devices.
