Newby & Scalby Library


Following the government announcement about the relaxation of Covid restrictions, we aim to open as follows:

From 17 May – we are open 4 days; Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and our hours will be extended to 10 – 5.30 on weekdays and 10 – 1.30 on Saturday. Seating, use of the coffee machine, 5 computers and unlimited browsing will return.  A one-way system will operate with customers leaving the library via the garden.

From 21 June – open as normal, five days a week 10 – 5.30 Mon, Tues, Wed and Friday, 10 – 1.30 Saturday.

All the above, of course, is dependent upon all going well and government restrictions being lifted as expected. We have started to organise many events for the Summer, so watch this space!

Books may be returned through the library’s letterbox if customers wish.  No fines will be charged for the lockdown period and media and IT subscriptions will be extended as necessary.

Customers can phone or email us to order Select and Collect books and DVDs.  Give us a call on 01609 534059 during open hours or email to request a special bundle of books based on your favourite authors and genres. We won’t include anything you’ve borrowed before from NYCC libraries. You can also request books in our library or order others in the NYCC catalogue. We’ll ring you to let you know when you can collect your bundle.
