Upcoming adult learning opportunities

Here are details of a couple of upcoming discussion-based sessions being run by North Yorkshire’s Adult Learning Learning and Skill Service via Skype in October.

See the posters for details of how book yourself a place.


Kids go free!

We want the community library to be as family-friendly as we can make it during challenging times for parents and children.

As part of our philosophy of giving back to our community we’ve decided that for the foreseeable future no fines will be levied for the late return of children’s books. As an extra bonus, all existing fines on the library accounts of our junior members will also be cancelled.

We’ve got a really exciting selection of children’s books to suit all ages from babies through to teens and we have new stock and the latest kids titles arriving every week. Pop in with your youngsters and let them choose some fresh reads soon. It would be really good to see you!

New opening hours

We’re extending our opening hours from Monday 7th September. Now you’ll have even more opportunities to come in and choose a cracking read, watch or listen!

For those who don’t wish to visit the library in person, our book bundles and home library services could be just the ticket. Click the links for full details.

Lions support the library

Easingwold Community Library is the lucky recipient of some beautiful picture books for children, presented by Easingwold District Lions during a recent visit.

Lions John Sutherland and Cassandra Bullock presented four books which have been signed by their author, Ellie Jackson.  The books tell the tales of four animals that struggle to escape man-made threats to their environments.  Nelson’s Dangerous Dive is about ghost nets in our oceans. Buddy’s Rainforest Rescue has an Orang-utan coping with logging as his home disappears. Marley’s Tangled Tale is about a penguin caught in plastic netting. Duffy’s Lucky Escape features a turtle who has a close shave with masses of plastic bottles.

These bright and attractive books are aimed at children in Years 5 and 6 but can, of course, be read to younger children.  They’re a brilliant way of getting the message across about caring for the environment – for the sake of animals and humans.

The books are on display to read in the library. The Lions have also presented copies of the books to each local primary school so if your child likes them they’ll also be able to find them when they return to school!

Many thanks to Easingwold District Lions.

Come in and choose a book

In the next stage of our phased re-opening, we are welcoming customers back into the Community Library to browse for books from Tuesday 4th August.

We will have new arrangements in place to keep everyone safe – both visitors and our volunteers. Please read our Covid-19: Information for Library Visitors before your visit and try to abide by our procedures while you are with us.

Our public computers are now open and we strongly advise you to ring us to pre-book a 45-minute session if you need one because availability is very limited. The book reservation service re-starts on Monday 3rd August. If you’re not comfortable about coming into the library, our Book Bundles service continues.

We are open on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10am until 12 Noon. Please note that there are no newspapers, seating or toilet facilities.

If you have any queries or questions about our new arrangements please email us at ecl.generalenquiries@gmail.com or ring us on 01609 534584 and leave a message.
