Syston library is close to the centre of the town, next to St Peter & St Pauls school. The library is on one level and has Smart Library extended opening hours.

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.

Library systems maintenance

Due to scheduled systems maintenance, library services will not be available on the morning of Saturday 23 November 2019. We anticipate that the work will be completed by 11am. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
