Consultation on changes to North Yorkshire's library services
We are consulting on proposals to change how library services are run across North Yorkshire. You can find out more and take part in the consulation here.
We will be holding a drop-in session at each of our libraries, including this one, and you can view dates, times and locations here.
We have also prepared a Richmond library information sheet [500kb] which gives key facts and figures about this library, such as number of visits, loan issues, members, running costs and more.
Finding the library, parking and access
The library is situated on the corner of Dundas Street and Queen's Road. There is a bus stop nearby which is served by the town bus service (31) and the Darlington bus service (27/28).
There are no dedicated parking spaces at the library. Disc parking is available on either side of Queen's Road (two hours maximum), parking discs are available at the library. There is a large public (pay) car park at Nuns Close, off Hurgill Road. This is approximately half a mile from the library and clearly sign posted. Alternatively, the Co-operative supermarket which is opposite the library has three hours free parking for their customers.
The library has automatic doors and all the ground floor areas are accessible to wheelchairs. There is a hearing loop available at the issuing desk and in the reference area of the library.
