New Library Opening Hours

Ruddington Library is changing its opening times from the start of September. However, the good news is that the total number of hours it’s open for visitors remains the same.

Inspire, which now runs the library for Nottinghamshire County Council (NCC), says the new opening hours follow “…a detailed review of current opening times and usage along with local knowledge and customer feedback”. Our village library is no longer closed for lunch on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday but opens half an hour later each morning instead. It then closes half an hour earlier on Tuesday and Thursday.

NCC Chairman for the Communities and Place Committee, John Cottee said: “I am delighted that following feedback and after listening to our residents we are able to ensure that the county’s library services are open when people want to use them. Our libraries are often the centre of a community and we want to make sure that everyone gets the chance to use and enjoy the fantastic facilities and services that are on offer.”

Among the monthly activities and meetings held in Ruddington Library are a mums & toddlers’ music group, Scrabble sessions and a new Knit & Natter group.

The Library’s new opening hours can be viewed below:

Previously, Inspire was contracted to deliver 1,487 hours of public access to the library service per week across Nottinghamshire. The September 1st changes have apparently boosted this slightly to 1,525 hours per week – with Ruddington contributing 27 of those, as before.
