Storytime has returned!

Storytime has made a triumphant return to Easingwold Community Library!

Pull on those comfy seven-league boots, shoulder your faithful old knapsack, keep the magic beans in your back pocket and tuck that passing golden goose under your arm for luck. Then, bring your unsuspecting pre-schoolies along to the library to enjoy one of our lovely volunteers bringing a children’s tale or two to life!

Storytime – every Thursday from 10.15am to 11.00am during term time.  It’s FREE and all are welcome. There’s no need to book – just come along.

Need a Bus Pass or Blue Badge?

Applications for North Yorkshire County Council bus passes and blue badges must be made online.  If you or someone you know needs help doing this, our trained IT Buddies are standing by.  We offer one-to-one sessions by appointment and the process takes around an hour.

Call into the library or ring us on 01609 534584 for an appointment and details of the documents you’ll need to bring with you.

A FREE service from the community library.

Have a Knit – Enjoy a Good Natter

Our Knit & Natter group, run by our lovely volunteers, meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month from 10am until Noon.

Join us for a good chat and a cuppa. Catch up on your latest project or start a new one. All abilities are welcome and if you get yourself into knots our knitting and crocheting wizards will be sure to be able to untangle things for you.

Young People & Positive Mental Health

Picture of wellbeing toolkit contents

All public libraries in North Yorkshire now have a brand new resource available for customers to borrow. It’s a self-care toolkit aimed at young people aged 11-25 and packed with resources to promote positive mental health in an easy-to carry-rucksack.

If you’d like to borrow our self-care toolkit (available from Monday 24th January) please drop by the library and ask at the desk.
