New Earswick Library is located at the Folk Hall, where Joseph Rowntree started the village’s very first library in 1908.

Starting from 7 September we open for drop-in browsing and borrowing, but we won’t be holding any in-person activities such as story times or reading groups yet. We can’t wait to welcome you back! Public computers will be available at a later date. Alternative computers are available at York, Acomb, Clifton and Tang Hall).

We’ve made this short film to give you an idea of what to expect when you visit us.

We have a lift available to enable access.
