  • Access to library services (self-service only)
  • Information on local public services
  • Free access to the internet via Wi-Fi

Self-service library

Rainbow library is now self-service only. You can borrow a wide range of junior and adult books, and you can use the self-service machine to borrow, return, or renew them. It's easy - just follow the steps on the machine. You'll get a receipt as a record.

If you need help, or you want to use a public computer or the scanning service, you can visit Hemlington Community Hub and Marton Community Hub.


You can use the free Wi-Fi at this library. Just connect to the 'MBCLibraries' network, and use your library borrower number and PIN number.
