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.

Reduced opening hours:

Mondays 1:30pm – 4:30pm
Thursdays 9:30am – 12:30pm

In line with government advice, library services will open up gradually. The priority is to protect the health and wellbeing of visitors and staff, so Perspex screens have been installed at the staff desk.

To use the computers and print documents you need to book an appointment by calling or emailing the library.

You can come into the library to borrow books using self-service.

The following services are not currently available:

  • computer assistance
  • reference material
  • newspapers
  • study space
  • face-to-face enquiries
  • events and groups

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.
