Newby & Scalby Library


We are once again 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. We would encourage continued wearing of face coverings and our staff will continue to wear theirs.  We won’t be asking for your contact details any more but you can still use the QR code for the Track and Trace. Seating, newspapers, use of the coffee machine, computers, the magazine swap and unlimited browsing have returned.  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 if customers wish.  

Our Clubs have also returned and are as follows –

Tuesdays          Pop in & Play, 10.30am – 12 noon, Free, Term Time Only

Card Sharps, every Tues. 2.00-4.00pm, Free.

Wednesdays    Norman Bear’s Storytime, 10.15 – 10.45am, Free, Term Time Only.

Second-hand books are now sold from three trolleys; one with Crime & Thrillers, one with Non-Fiction and Large Print and the third with beach reads, historical novels and literary fiction.  Children’s books are in green tubs in the entrance near a spinner of literary fiction for sale.  We also sell second-hand jigsaws, and brand new Chartmedia sticker, colouring & activity books and posters for just £1.
