Opening Hours

As our facilities become impacted by Omicron, you could experience

  • A change to opening hours
  • Periods of closure
  • A reduction in services (for example, the library may only be available for click and collect service)

Some of these changes will happen at short notice, so please keep checking our Facebook feeds, check our website or give the library a call before you plan to visit.
