Finding the library, parking and access
The library is located on the main A170 Scarborough to Thirsk Road, in the village of West Ayton, in between Ayton Methodist Chapel and the Forge Valley Inn. There is a bus stop nearby served by the 8 and 128 buses.
There is a car park adjacent to the library with space for six cars. There is also one space immediately outside the library. Should the car park be full, there is a large car park behind the library. This belongs to the pub but it may be used by library customers. The library has automatic doors and all areas are accessible to wheelchairs. A hearing loop is available at the counter. Baby changing facilities are also available.
