Serving the People of Wootton, Northamptonshire

Wootton Library

The Library Management System (LMS) system Spark is being updated to reflect that Wootton Library is closed whilst the building extension and refurbishment of the current site is on-going as confirmed on the following link:

The expected completion date of the extension build which will house the new Library and Coffee Shop is mid-2021, but may be later in the year dependent on the progress of the extension build and refurbishment, which will be followed by a re-fit of the new Library and Coffee Shop.

Should you have a book or other items which you have borrowed from Wootton Library, please be assured that the return date on these items will as a minimum be extended until the new Library is fully open later in the year.

Should any customer like to return their books, the nearest Libraries are:

Hunsbury: Tuesdays and Thursdays (10am-4pm); Saturdays (10am-2pm)

Northampton Central Library: Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays (10am-4pm); Saturdays (10am-2pm)

Its what we have all been waiting for, your newly fitted out Wootton Library is due to re-open to the general public on Monday 26th July 2021. We have an enthusiastic team of volunteers who will be based in the Library during the week Monday to Friday 10am to 3pm initially. Once our newbie volunteers are confident in owning a session during the week, we will review the initial opening times and days of opening which we hope may extend to the weekend and early evenings Monday to Friday.

You can view the historic progress of the Library extension on our weekly report through the following link:
