Menston Community Library

Latest update from the Library  : from Monday 26th April we are hoping to start allowing people back into the Library for a quick visit to choose books from our shelves.  People will need to follow the usual - and now all too familiar - social distancing and hand hygiene so that we all stay safe.

Monday         10.30 to 12.00  

Wednesday    10.30 to 12.00

Thursday       14.30 to 16.00

No appointment needed but maximum of 6 members of the public at a time inside the library. You can also still reserve books on-line of course
