The library is situated on the corner of Dundas Street and Queen's Road. There is a bus stop nearby which is served by the town bus service (31) and the Darlington bus service (27/28).

There are no dedicated parking spaces at the library. Disc parking is available on either side of Queen's Road - parking discs are available at the library. There is a large public (pay) car park at Nuns Close, off Hurgill Road. This is approximately half a mile from the library and clearly sign posted. Alternatively, the Co-operative supermarket opposite the library offers free parking for their customers. With all car parks please note the local information signs for any restrictions.
