Opening Times, Location & Other Services

The Library is now fully open and working as normal and we would love to see you there. There are so many great books to borrow, both fiction and non fiction and our events are back too.

To help keep everyone safe we encourage adults to wear a face covering if you can when visiting. It may occasionally be necessary to restrict entry at busy times. Please note that we have a pre-school group visit every Monday 2-3pm so please avoid this time if you can as we are still on restricted numbers so cannot guarantee that individuals will be allowed in at this time.

We hope to see you at the library soon!
