Birstall library is next to Riverside School. The library is on two levels and has a lift available.

IT issues in our libraries

We have been experiencing intermittent problems with our library computers, which have also been reported by users. Our IT team are investigating this and have recommended removing a small number of computers from each library, to see if this improves the matter.

We’re very sorry for any inconvenience this causes to your visit but hope all library PC users will benefit from a better service in the future, as a result of this testing.
