Neston Library

Neston Library will re-open from 13 July with temporary revised opening hours. Items can be returned and borrowed via our self-service machines. You will also be able to pre-book a computer for essential tasks and urgent printing as well as use the photocopier (self-service). Borrowing items and using the computers will also be self-service, so remember to bring your library card.

To support a safe and managed opening, we will have some new measures in place:

  • Provision of hand sanitiser, one-way systems and floor marking to maintain social distancing. We’ll also be following Government Track and Trace guidelines.
  • All loans have been extended until 1 September. 
  • Families will be welcome, but to ensure spaces can be managed safely, all children under 12 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
  • Regular events and activities have suspended.
  • All of our reading challenges are online. Anyone can take part in our Summer Reading Challenges, which includes: Summer reading challenge (U13's), Julybrary (Teen Challenge), Adults Read Two and #30DayBookChallenge

All loans have been extended until 1 September. You can still renew your loans using the Cheshire Libraries Catalogue or by phoning 0300 123 7739 (24 hour renewals).
