On Ist May 2014, Explore York Libraries and Archives transferred out of the council and into a Community Benefit Society.
- We want to use this opportunity to reimagine the library spaces in line with our vision to promote the joy of reading, digital inclusion and learning. Using technology such as self issue terminals, we will provide books, internet access, WiFi, as well as a range of activities for all ages.
- We also hope to include a dedicated Community Sports Archive, working with local sporting organisations as well as an interpretation of the historical relevance of the site.
- This will be in addition to our other libraries and represents an exciting opportunity to deliver our services and work with our partners in different ways.
