Mossdale Avenue will be closed for resurfacing works Wednesday 11th, Thursday 12th and Friday 13th November 2020, so there will be no access to the library carpark. Please use the other carpark for these three days should you need to access the site.

We are open by appointment only during the national lockdown for computer use and books to borrow using click and collect.

Click and collect is simple to use. You can reserve books from our catalogue as usual and we will contact you when they are ready to collect. Or you can choose a Lucky Dip: complete the form for Children or the form for Adults, and we will choose 5 or 10 books for you based on your preferences. Please be aware that the Toy Library is not included in Click and Collect.

Computers and printers will be available. Bookings will be for two hours and must be made in advance either online or you can phone us to make a booking.

Please be aware that we cannot allow drop-in or browsing for the duration of the lockdown.

Getting there

Cycling: There are plenty of covered cycle racks available.

Buses: First York bus no. 11 stops outside the building.

Driving: Two free car parks, one on each side of the building, with around 70 spaces in total. There is a drop off point outside the library entrance plus four accessible parking spaces. There is also an electric car charging point operated by Charge Your Car. On-street parking is available with no local parking restrictions.

Taxis: Not all companies are yet familiar with our location. When giving information we recommend that you refer to Tang Hall Explore Library, The Centre @ Burnholme, Mossdale Avenue, off Bad Bargain Lane. Our postcode is YO31 0HA. If this is not recognised, suggest YO31 0GW as an alternative. Do not go to Fifth Avenue as we have not been at that location since June 2018.
