Newby & Scalby Library

THE LIBRARY WILL BE CLOSED ON BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY, 2 MAY 2022 AND ALSO ON THURSDAY 2, FRIDAY 3 AND SATURDAY 4 JUNE FOR THE QUEEN’S PLATINUM JUBILEE BANK HOLIDAY.

We are open five days a week Mon, Tues, Wed and Friday, 10 – 5.30, Saturday 10am – 1.30pm.  Your safety remains our priority.  We want everyone to feel safe and comfortable and would ask that you treat others using the building with consideration as we know that many visitors wish to remain cautious.  Wearing of face coverings is no longer compulsory but many of our staff will continue to wear theirs.  Comfy seating, newspapers, use of the hot drinks machine, computers, the magazine swap, DVDs and unlimited browsing are available.  The one-way system will no longer operate but customers may still leave the library via the garden gate if they wish.  Books may be returned through the library’s letterbox.
