Changes at Clayton Library

From Monday 3 April Clayton Library will reduce opening hours as follows:

  • Monday 10am to 2pm
  • Tuesday closed
  • Wednesday closed
  • Thursday 1pm to 7pm
  • Friday closed
  • Saturday 9.30am to 12.30pm

This is to enable us to continue to work with Clayton Parish Council to eventually operate as a ‘hybrid’ library – a mixture of volunteers and library staff.

Opening hours will increase when all is in place.

We thank all our customers for their continued loyalty and support
