Announcement: Library Open Longer

In response to our communities’ needs, we are pleased to announce that Artizan Street Library and Community Centre will be extending it’s opening hours from Monday 14 May to include later evenings and Saturday mornings. The library will be open 10 hours longer per week.

We will be trialling Saturday morning opening for 6 months to try to give better access to library services for local residents and families. The later opening in the evenings will allow us to run a programme of after school activities for children and more study opportunities and creative events for young people. We would welcome volunteers to support these activities. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact:
