Library news: self-service installation

Helsby and Hope Farm libraries will be closing temporarily in order to install self-service technology. We will need to close for this short period of time in order to relocate stock, shelves and computers and install the new machines.

  • Helsby Library will close at 1pm on Saturday 21 May and will re-open at 9.30am on Tuesday 31 May
  • Hope Farm Library will close at 1pm on Saturday 4 June and will re-open at 2pm on Monday 13 June

Customers may wish to visit other local libraries in the interim. Loans will not be due back during the closed period and items can be renewed, 24/7, either online or by calling 0845 148 0148.
