Barnton Library

Extended opening hours

While Northwich Library is temporarily closed, Barnton, Sandiway and Weaverham libraries have extended their opening hours.

All items currently on loan from Northwich Library will be renewed automatically whilst the library is closed. 

All regular activities have been relocated to different sites around Northwich and the neighbourhood libraries. The full activity programme and updates about the closure can be found on our Northwich Library page.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused by this closure. 

Our order and collect service is still available from selected libraries and we have a wide range of eBooks, audio downloads, eMagazines, eNewspapers and eResources free of charge.

Our libraries are now fine-free for children aged 0 to 12 years so they will no longer be charged for any overdue items. Any pre-existing late charges have been removed from their accounts.
