York Minster Library to close from Thursday 5 November

Posted on 4 November 2020

As a result of the national lockdown across England, there will be no access to the buildings or collections at York Minster Library from Thursday 5 November.

During this time you will therefore be unable to book appointments at York Minster Library or to access materials from the Minster collections through our Book Takeaway service. Library staff at York Minster Library will continue to work remotely and will answer enquiries as best as possible via email at

We do not yet know when we will be able to reopen York Minster Library. Keep an eye on Library News or our Twitter account for the latest information.

Our other Library and Archives buildings and services remain available during lockdown. Read more in our recent news item or contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
