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.

Our opening hours are currently:

Mon 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Tue closed
Wed 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Thu closed
Fri 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Sat 10:00 am - 12:00 noon

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.

Library Information

If you have any questions or need assistance, the volunteer library staff will be pleased to help.

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!
