Wednesday December 11 is the day of our annual staff conference. Libraries which normally open on Wednesday – Acomb, Clifton, Bishopthorpe, Haxby, Poppleton, Tang Hall, York City Centre, and the Mobile library – will be closed that day. Items due back on 11 December are renewed automatically. We are sorry if you are disappointed by the closure, but hope that you will understand how important it is for us to bring staff together to learn and develop so we can continue to deliver a high quality service for all our customers.
