Harrogate library is set to undergo extensive improvement work later this month

County Councillor Greg White, Executive Member for Libraries, said: “These much-needed improvements will have lasting benefits to Harrogate library; one of our largest and busiest in the county.

“Unfortunately the works will cause considerable disruption so a full closure is necessary.

"We apologise for the inconvenience it will cause to library visitors but we are encouraging people to come and borrow a selection of books to keep them going over the closure period.”

The nearest alternative libraries are Bilton & Woodfield Community Library, Starbeck Community Library, Knaresborough Library & Customer Services Centre and Nidderdale Plus Community Library

Customers can browse, reserve and renew items and access their library account online or via the library app.
