NYCC Library Service Update

All North Yorkshire libraries are temporarily closed until further notice, on advice from the Government and to support efforts to stop the spread of Covid-19.

During the closures, no one needs to worry about accruing fines. Books will be automatically renewed. 

We are continuing to provide services online at and have made arrangements to extend our range of e-books and e-audiobooks.

If you need a PIN to access online services, this can be issued over the phone.

You can also phone if you wish to join the library. Membership card numbers and a PIN will be emailed to you separately.

If library cards expire you will still be able to access all digital resources and borrow e-books and e-audiobooks.

For enquiries, to join the library or get your PIN, please call 01609 533878 or email

Please note, staff are only available during normal office hours Monday – Thursday 8.30am-5pm and Friday 8.30am-4.30pm

We very much hope to be back providing a full service as soon as possible and look forward to welcoming you all again.
