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.

Need fresh reading ideas?

Looking for new ideas for books to enjoy?

Who else writes like..” is a cracking tool if you enjoy reading fiction. With a click or three you can browse by genre, go straight to an author of interest or find other authors who write similar stuff to your usual favourites.  You can do all this plus check out characters and series, and catch up with the latest prize-winning writers.

If you’re a library member you’ll be able to access a wide range of eBooks and audio books using your NYCC Libraries card. Not a member? No problem – join online here.

You’ll find other ideas to help keep you and your family connected with books and reading on our Online Inspiration page.

Home Library Service

Our Home Library & Information Service is free and is for people of all ages who are unable to get to the library or carry books themselves.

The service is available on a permanent or temporary basis – for example anyone with a long term condition affecting their ability to leave the house, recuperating after illness or an operation, or shielding.

HOW DO I JOIN?

Give us a call on 01609 534584. If we’re not open just leave a message with your contact number and we’ll get back to you. Alternatively, you can email us at ecl.generalenquiries@gmail.com

What happens then?

One of our friendly volunteers will get in touch to chat about your needs and your reading and listening preferences. We’ll then put together regular selections of books, large print editions, audiobooks and movies on DVD for you. Our volunteers will deliver your items right to your door and collect any returns.
