Where We Are

The library is close to the Market Place in Easingwold town centre, just behind The Commercial. Look for our large sign under the willow tree.


The library garden entrance nearest to the Market Place has two steps up with a handrail on each side.  Wheelchair users have easy access via the second garden entrance which is 30 metres further along Tanpit Lane. The garden paths are paved and level.

The library building has an automatic door and a gently ramped entrance lobby with handrails.  Indoors, the library is on one level with no steps. The building is equipped with a hearing loop. One of the four public computer workstations is wheelchair-friendly.

The library has an accessible unisex toilet. It is equipped with a handrail and disabled alarm. The nearest alternative accessible public toilet is located nearby on the Market Square.

Mobility scooters must be left outside the main entrance because of access and space restrictions.

An Assistance Doorbell by the front door can be used to summon help.

Guide dogs and assistance dogs are most welcome in the library.

Getting to Easingwold

Regular bus services run between Easingwold, York and Thirsk via the surrounding villages. Buses stop in the Market Place. Details of these services can be found here.


Limited car parking is sometimes available on the roadside outside the library. The main town car park is just 50 metres away in the Market Place. Parking is free.


Only guide and assistance dogs are allowed in the library.
