Yatton library

Libraries in North Somerset have begun a phased reopening

Yatton library is an important community hub that many people enjoyed visiting before the pandemic.

The library reopened (in a limited way) on 10th August.

Current opening hours:

Mondays:  1:30pm – 4:30pm
Tuesdays:  9:30am – 12:30pm *
Thursdays:  9:30am – 12:30pm
Saturdays:  9:30am – 12:30pm

* 10:00am on the first Tuesday of the month

Yatton library is open to the public for self-service borrowing, and appointments to use the computers and printing facilities.

Opening hours are still shorter than usual to help keep everyone safe, but the Council is working hard to continue to extend them where possible.

The LibrariesWest catalogue is available for customers to place reservations online (up to a maximum of 10) for pick-up from any North Somerset library. It might take a little longer than usual for us to find and deliver items as we work to keep customers and staff safe.

The following services are not currently available:

  • computer assistance
  • reference material
  • newspapers
  • seating areas / study space
  • face-to-face enquiries
  • events

The library is offering a non-contact click and collect service. More details are available online at:

Libraries are more than just a physical space and you can still access an expanded online library – including audiobooks , magazines, newspapers and comics.

The Council also made it easier for people to join online, with investment switched from hardcopy to digital to extend the eBook and eAudio titles offer.

Some libraries share a building with children’s centres. If you are currently under midwifery care at one of the area’s children’s centres, keep attending at your usual location as these midwife appointments continue.
