Retford Library Refurbishment - reopening early August

Retford Library closed in December 2019 to allow work on an extensive refurbishment project. Further details of the project can be found here. You can also keep up to date and see photos as the renovation work progresses here.

Library refurbishments have experienced inevitable delays due to COVID -19, however we have been working with our contractors during this difficult period to keep things progressing as much as is possible. We are delighted that we are preparing to reopen Retford Library early August, with safety measures in place to protect staff and customers. We are looking at ways of celebrating the reopening of Retford which is in line with government guidelines

Following the coronavirus pandemic, our library re-opening schedule can be found here.  Click here for full details of the service on offer, and the measures in place to keep our customers and staff safe.
