Have your say on library opening times

Closes 26 Feb 2023


The proposal is to keep every library open and increase the opening hours of community hub libraries from 31 to 34 hours per week, with the following standardised opening pattern for each library:

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday open 10am until 5pm

Thursday - closed all day

Saturday open 10am until 4pm

We are proposing to align the increase in opening hours with the highest book lending rates (when people use them most).  This adjustment will mean: closing on a Thursday, opening for five mornings per week instead of four, and not having a 6.30pm late closing once per week.  

The libraries affected are located at: Chapeltown, Crystal Peaks, Darnall, Ecclesall, Firth Park, Highfield, Hillsborough, Manor, Parson Cross, Stocksbridge, Woodseats.

This proposal does not affect Central Library or volunteer run libraries.

Please complete the following questions and tell us what you think.


1. What is the first part of your post code, for example S1
2. Have you used a library service in the past two years?
