We’re back and looking forward to seeing you again!

Another library is re-opening.

We are delighted that from Monday 12 October, Pendleton Library is re-opening. Swinton, Broughton, Eccles, Height, Winton, Little Hulton and Cadishead Libraries are already open and welcoming back customers.

The emphasis will be on the safety of our customers and our staff, so things will need to be a little different from normal.

The new opening hours for Pendleton Library are:

  • Monday – 10.00am to 4.00pm
  • Tuesday – 10.00am to 4.00pm
  • Wednesday – 10.00am to 4.00pm
  • Thursday – 10.00am to 4.00pm
  • Friday – 10.00am to 4.00pm

We will be following government advice and strict safety measures, especially around social distancing, cleaning and hygiene, and will be asking all customers to co-operate.

At Pendleton Library, Swinton Library, Eccles Library and Broughton Library we are offering 2 services for our members – Browsing Appointments and PC Appointments.

At Height, Winton, Little Hulton and Cadishead Libraries we are offering 2 services – Call & Collect and PC Appointments.
