Welcome To Dudley Libraries Online

Dudley Public Library Service is committed to providing a service which is open and accessible to all.

We have libraries spread across the Borough, a home library service for residents unable to get to a library for themselves, as well as a Local History and Archives service. We offer a range of services which includes free wi-fi internet at all libraries.

Review of the Month

Our review this month is for "Golden Boy" by Abigail Tarttelin, and was submitted by one of our customers. 

"This book cuts you to the core, the heart wrenching struggle of a teenager coming to terms with being intersex as well as coping with the usual teenage angst in a typical suburban family. I particularly liked the fact that the story came full circle and didn't leave you wanting at the end".
