Library Service Update

Dear All,

Enderby Community Library will Close today at 6pm (18th March 2020) until further notice. This decision has not been taken lightly.

It is the Council's responsibility to ensure that all attempts to take the necessary steps in terms of social distancing are supported and this situation has been guided by Government advice and decisions made by Leicestershire Libraries.

Further updates will be given via this Website, Facebook/Twitter.

The Council appreciates that this will be of some disappointment to many of our regular users and would ask that you follow Enderby Community Library via its Facebook Page, Twitter etc. to keep up to date with any changes in service provision.

Reconfiguration of Library Space

Enderby Library Management Committee (ELMC) has been working hard behind the scenes to ensure the future success of this service.

Reconfiguration of the Library commenced 25th April 2016, which included the installation of a disabled public access toilet facility and the creation of a meeting room. Lighting has also been upgraded, the roof space has been insulated and the building was reglazed at the beginning of May to help reduce running costs long term.
