Essential building works March 2021
Essential repairs to the roof of Explore York Library began on 22 March for approximately 12 weeks. Scaffolding is needed at the front of the building and we regret that the accessible parking bays on Library Square are suspended for the whole of this period. 7 accessible parking bays are available nearby on Duncombe Place outside the Dean Court Hotel. Information about accessible parking in York.
While the works are going on disabled customers may prefer to use another library. Acomb and Tang Hall libraries both have accessible parking. Just contact us to change your pick-up library and we will arrange for items to be sent there. You may wish to consult reference items available only at York. If this is the case, please contact us and we will send them to your preferred library (there will be no charge for this).
