From 1st June the opening hours of Denbighshire’s Libraries and One Stop Shops will be changing.

The new hours have been informed and tweaked by Library staff, Library users and the numerous responses to the public consultation to fit each individual Library’s needs on a case-by-case basis.

The full array of Library services are being maintained, and a full programme of activities will be available to users throughout Denbighshire. The extremely popular Bookstart rhymetime sessions are continuing, and people will still be able to drop into their local Talking Point to find out what help and support is available in their local area, but there may be some changes to specific times.

The Digital Library offering will continue to be available 24/7, giving Library members free access to eBooks, audiobooks and ePress via the Borrowbox app, and digital magazines via the Libby app.

The new opening hours are as below and will be implemented from June 1st:

Liz Grieve, Head of Housing & Communities Service said:

 

“We have tried to choose hours that benefit each Library’s specific needs and create a balance between location and opening times.

 

No Library within Denbighshire is closing its doors permanently through these changes, and the core Library services that our residents have come to know and love have been protected and are fully accessible during these new hours.

 

We are looking forward to working with partners and community groups so that we can continue to keep Libraries at the heart of our local communities.”
