Libraries and Cafes
You will find all opening hours on the individual library and reading cafe pages of our website.
Home Library Service
If you find it difficult to visit a library in-person, you may be interested in our Home Library Service.
Dogs in our cafes and libraries
Our cafes at Hungate, Rowntree Park, Homestead Park, Acomb and Tang Hall have outdoor terraces where dogs are very welcome. York Explore has a garden space outside where you could take a dog and enjoy a takeaway from our cafe. Assistance dogs are welcome in all our libraries of course, but otherwise we ask you to consider the needs of all customers and leave your pet at home.
Please see our Future Libraries page to learn about our plans to develop York’s libraries.
