A large, modern library in the centre of Wigston. The library has a ramp to the entrance and is on one level with wide easy access aisles. Facilities, such as the toilets, are on the lower floor with access available by lift and stairs.

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.

The lift at Wigston library is currently out of order. 

We're very sorry for any inconvenience this causes and will provide an update as soon as the lift has been repaired.
