We want everyone to feel safe and comfortable so would ask that you treat others using the building with consideration as we know that many visitors wish to remain cautious.

We are managing the reintroduction of services and there will be local variations.

Managed libraries

Libraries managed by ourselves are open for people to choose their own books and spend some time. We are no longer restricting numbers except for pre-bookable activities. We are gradually reintroducing our full range of services such as events, meeting room hire, study space or regular group meetings, where we can and it is safe to do so. Public computers are available for bookings.

Staff and volunteers will continue to wear masks for now and we would encourage our customers to do the same. Track and trace is still available and we will maintain our hand sanitiser stations.

Whilst we are not enforcing social distancing we want everyone to feel safe and comfortable so would ask that you treat others using the building with consideration as we know that many visitors wish to remain cautious.

Thank you for helping to keep everyone safe.

There will be some variations at community run libraries. Please check the Facebook page or website of your local community library for further information about the services they are offering and opening times. Community library contact details can be found on the local libraries page.

Select and Collect service

In response to public demand, we are continuing to offer a ‘select and collect' service at Filey, Harrogate, Knaresborough, Malton, Northallerton, Pickering, Ripon, Selby, Scarborough, Skipton and Whitby libraries as well as many of our community libraries.

You can request books by calling or emailing your library and one of our library team will hand pick your choices and arrange for you to come and collect them at a time convenient to you.

The books will be ready for you to collect from the library entrance and you’ll be able to borrow the books for three weeks.

You can use the select and collect service by completing the  select and collect request form (doc / 372 KB) and emailing it to us or by contacting your local library using the details above.

Public access computers

People can book to use the public access computers at all libraries and we are increasing the number of computers available to use.

You can book yourself onto an available PC for 30 minutes at no charge. Charges may apply after the free period.

Customers with subscriptions can now ask for these to be re-activated

Home Library Service

We understand that some people will still not be able to visit the library at the moment due to ill health or carer responsibilities. We are pleased to be able to offer our popular and free Home Library Service. Books can be selected by the library team and delivered to your doorstep once a fortnight, free of charge. We will also collect any library books from your doorstep to return to the library on your behalf.

Further information can be found on our home library service page or contact your local library.

Supermobile library

Our Supermobile library is on the road. We have a temporary timetable, which you can view below.

You can come on the vehicle to choose your own books but if you would like us to select books for you to collect when we visit call 01609 533878 or email supermobile@northyorks.gov.uk.

Remote services

Our remote Reprographics and Research services will continue to operate so you can request that we produce copies or do research on your behalf if you prefer not to visit in person. There is a charge for this service. Please see Record office collections and services.

Historic Environment Records

Physical access to the historic environment records is restricted, however the other services provided by the North Yorkshire historic environment records are being conducted as usual. A great deal of the physical records held within the historic environment records are scanned, some with permissions to digitally disseminate. We will try our best to acquire copyright permission to disseminate for any reports or documents requested to facilitate remote working and study – please do ask if this might help you.
