Whitby Library to close from tonight until further notice
All North Yorkshire-managed libraries - including Whitby Library - will be closed from 5pm tonight (Mar 23), until further notice
A statement said: "While we recognise that customers see us as a valuable community resource and have been continuing to access services, we feel that this is the most responsible thing to do in the interests of the safety and health of our customers, staff and volunteers and we need to support efforts to stop the spread of Covid-19.
"We are continuing to provide services online https://www.northyorks.gov.uk/digital-library and have made arrangements to extend loan periods for items on loan.
"No one needs to worry about accruing fines.
"We very much hope to be back providing a full service as soon as possible and look forward to welcoming you all again."
