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)
Wootton Library will remain closed from the 23rd June 2020. On October 5th 2020, our appointed contactors commenced work on the new Library and Coffee Shop extension. It is expected that the build and re-fit will take approximately 34 weeks.
You can view the progress of the Library extension on our weekly report through the following link:

NCC Library Services
From Monday July 6th, Northamptonshire County Council (NCC) are planning to open 7 NCC libraries to give a spread of service across the county. These libraries are Wellingborough, Irthlingborough, Brackley, Kettering, Weston Favell, Daventry and Oundle. Only the following 3 services will be offered initially:
- A signposting enquiry service
- Access to the internet
- Some form of lending service
Though the way NCC deliver these services will vary slightly from library to library depending on layouts, it is important that the offer is consistent across the county, so we ask that no additional services from individual libraries, including CMLs that will be re-opening, are offered at this time. We have to make sure that the phasing of the return of services is safe, consistent and approved.
Through signage and digital channels NCC will do their best to manage customer expectations and library staff will also play a key role in ensuring customers understand the limitations of our current offer.
