Closure date for library

Have your say

A LIBRARY in Barnsley is set to close in May, it has been announced.

Priory Library, one of Barnsley Council’s multi-purpose learning centres at Priory Campus in Lundwood, is shutting on May 27, and new opening hours will be place from April 1 while the service is reduced.

The library will be open from 9.30am to 6.30pm, Monday to Thursday, 9.30am to 1pm on Friday and closed on Saturday.

Neighbouring libraries at Monk Bretton and Cudworth can also be used on Saturdays and late nights.

A council spokeswoman said discussions are taking place as to whether the service can continue under the campus trust with minimal support from the council.
