Improving your library’s opening hours

For the past few months, we have been trialling new opening hours that reflect the way you use the library.

Following its success, we would now like to continue with opening the library at 8.30am and closing at 5pm. We also want to change our half day opening from Wednesday afternoon (12pm - 5pm) to Thursday morning (8.30am - 2pm), in line with other libraries across the city.

The new opening hours would be:
Monday 8.30am - 5pm
Tuesday 8.30am - 5pm
Wednesday 8.30am - 5pm
Thursday 8.30am - 2pm
Friday 8.30am - 5pm
Saturday 10am - 2pm
Sunday Closed

We want to know your views on these changes. Please help us to improve your local library service by filling in the short feedback form available at the library counter. You can also call 01782 231315 or email
