Opening Times


Our new mobile library has arrived, and is settling into its new home at the council depot in Hazel Court. It’s passed its MOT, and we’re fitting it out for its new role serving customers in Haxby and Wigginton. At the moment it’s a rather fetching shade of orange, which will certainly stand out, so we’re giving it a new livery so that it belongs to the Explore family.

Once it’s had a makeover you’ll see it about over the next few weeks as we put the finishing touches on the stops it will be visiting when it starts its new job with us.



Haxby Explore will be continuing to run a temporary alternative service until spring 2017. Details of the current alternative arrangements are shown below. See the news section for information about longer term plans for Haxby

What’s happening where?

Our staff will be based at Oaken Grove Community Centre where we have a library with a range of adults’ and children’s books. Our regular storytime is continuing there.

Our staff are also covering the extended opening hours at New Earswick Library where there are PCs available. PCs are available at every library in York, but not at Oaken Grove at present.

You can return your books at Oaken Grove or at any York Library.  Books can be renewed on our catalogue website or at any York Library.
