Finding the library, parking and access
The library is on North Road and forms part of a joint building called Town Close that includes Hambleton District Council offices and an extra care facility. It is a one minute walk from the High Street.
Parking is available for visitors to the building and there are two disabled parking spaces. Disc parking is in operation in parts of the town centre and discs are available in many local shops. Additional pay and display parking is available in the town centre at the Showfield car park, which is a five minute walk away. The library has automatic doors and all areas are accessible to wheelchairs. There is also a hearing loop available.
