Finding the library, parking and access
The library is situated on the main street in Norton, called Commercial Street. The building is set back from the main road, just opposite the zebra crossing. There are two Coastliner bus stops very near to the entrance of the library. The train station is approximately 12 minutes walk away.
There are at least 12 car parking spaces behind the library. Further parking is available free of charge at St Nicholas Street car park, which is situated off the main street, close to the railway crossing. The car park is sign posted. The library has automatic doors and is accessible to wheelchairs.

Consultation on changes to North Yorkshire's library services
We recently consulted on proposals to change how library services are run across North Yorkshire. The consultation has now closed but the information is still available for reference purposes. You can also read a Norton library information sheet [497kb] which gives key facts and figures about this library.
