The Barrow Community Partnership Library went Live on Monday 27th July 2015

BUSCA were officially handed the keys to Barrow Library on Monday 27th July. Our volunteers had been busy preparing themselves with training sessions and were ready to provide you with a service that was Business as Usual.

We now operate slighly longer opening hours than before, staying open over lunchtime on Wednesday and Friday. The evening opening day has changed from Friday to Wednesday:

Mon 2:00pm - 5:00pm
Tue closed
Wed 10:00am - 6:00pm
Thu closed
Fri 10:00am - 5:00pm
Sat 10:00am - 1:00pm

You will experience the same systems and services for book lending, computer use, photo-copying etc. In fact, we hope that you won't notice the difference and that we will be able to match the same level of excellent service that we have all enjoyed in the past.

We now have a coffee machine, so come to the library, relax and enjoy tea or coffee while you make your next literary selection.

If you have any queries, please contact library@barrowuponsoar.org.uk or use the library phone 01509 416356

See our new Facebook page.

A larger collection of stock can be found at Loughborough Library. It costs nothing to join the library or to borrow books (the basic service is free) and you are never too young to join!
