GDCL – All sorts of books and formats

DVDs imageDVDs: We have lots of DVDs which you can borrow using your library card. There are various charges from £2 to £3.50 to borrow a DVD (which goes to WCBC) depending on the title but very recent ‘premium’ titles will cost a little more. You can keep the DVD for a week. As usual, if there’s a title you’re looking for which we don’t have in Gresford we can request it for you from another Wrexham library and it will be with you in a few days (unless there is a waiting list).

Quick Reads set out to show that books and reading can be for everyone. Each year they commission big name authors to write short books that are specifically designed to be easy to read – they are simply shorter and easier to tackle.
