Pontesbury Library is moving…
Pontesbury Library will be closed from Monday 23 March and will re-open on Monday 6 April in the new Pavilion Community Hub building on Hall Bank.
Loan periods have been extended so that most library items shouldn’t be due back during the closed period. However you can renew things online or at any other Shropshire library, or by telephoning Shrewsbury Library (01743 255308).
Don’t forget that as a library member you can use any of the other library branches plus there’s a great selection of e-books, e-audiobooks and digital newspapers and magazines available via the Shropshire Libraries website.
We’re looking forward to welcoming everyone to our new home in the Pavilion!
