Late Night Library

October 2019 sees the launch of 'Late Night Library' as we extend our opening hours til 21.00 on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

It's the first increase in Library opening hours in decades.

We hope you will appreciate the opportunity to borrow and return books outside regular working hours, as well as the chance to use the building as a community and social space for reading, playing board games and video games, doing jigsaw puzzles, and all sorts of other activities that help boost health and well-being.

We also see Late Night Library as a great way to improve our offering for students, who until now have had minimal access outside school or office hours. If you’re studying for school exams, accountancy exams, or any other qualification, come and make use of our quiet study space, our WiFi, and our coffee machine.

We plan to hold numerous evening events. Events already lined up include LEGO nights for families, Living History tours, a monthly workshop for creative writers, a Quiet Hour aimed at children and adults with autism, and regular IT classes. It also provides an opportunity for other organisations and charities to use the Library building for their own clubs and drop-ins. If you're interested in making use of the space, get in touch!

Finally, the most important bit - to help launch the campaign, we are offering free tea and coffee for the first month of Late Night Library.


To celebrate the change in our opening hours, we’re running a competition to win a brand-new Kindle Fire 7. Use this state-of-the art tablet to surf the web, play games, read eBooks and listen to audiobooks, including through our own BorrowBox and RB Digital apps.

Taking part is easy. Simply use your Library card to borrow a book between the hours of 17.30 and 21.00 in October and you’ll automatically be entered into our prize draw.

You must be aged 16 or over to be eligible to win.
