Monk Bretton Library

Monk Bretton Library closed on Saturday 1st November 2014.

Following a public consultation, a decision was made to close this library, due to the building requiring costly building work and as a result of a significant reduction in the number of customers. 

You can read more about the closure of Monk Bretton Library in a statement on our newspages.
