Libraries to open on Sunday from this weekend

Sunday opening hours are set to be introduced at seven libraries in the Royal Borough this weekend.

The libraries have been added to a pilot scheme which has been running since September and will be open to the public between 11am and 2pm.

Saturday opening hours have also been introduced at Eton Library, in High Street, which will open between 10am and 1pm.

Maidenhead, Windsor, Sunningdale container and Cox Green libraries were already part of the pilot and will now have Sunday opening hours permanently.

Cllr Eileen Quick, cabinet member for leisure and libraries, said: "The borough's libraries form an essential part of the fabric of our communities and are valued immensely by our residents.

"I'm delighted that an increased number of libraries are now opening over the weekend and providing more opportunities for local people to take advantage of the many services they have to offer.

"With a great range of books and DVDs as well as free internet access, and with school exams just around the corner, there really is no better time to visit a local library."

The libraries with new Sunday opening hours are:

  • Ascot, High Street
  • Dedworth, Smiths Lane
  • Datchet, Horton Road
  • Eton Wick, Village Hall
  • Sunninghill, School Road
  • Cookham, High Road
  • Old Windsor, Straight Road
