This is Volunteers week so a BIG thank you to our wonderful Volunteers.

BARLBY LIBRARY VOLUNTEERS - The Community Library was saved from closure in 2021 by a partnership between the Town Council and the 2012  team of Volunteers (some of whom are still volunteering with us). The project and the continuing running of the Library Service could not have been achieved without the thousands of hours the team have put in. 

BLV MANAGEMENT TEAM and EVENTS TEAM - Who put in countless hours on behalf of the local Community to manage the Library Service, put on events for children - plus the popular Monthly Coffee afternoon and legendary Quiz.

LITTER VOLUNTEERS - Picking up after people who don't seem to care about their environment and keeping the Parish looking at its best. 

COUNCILLORS - Don't forget your Town Councillors are also volunteers. Taking decisions to manage and improve Parish assets including the play areas, allotments, countryside areas, street lights, grass cutting, seats and bins for Barlby Village, Osgodby Village and Barlby Bridge, as well as lobbying for improved services such as Broadband/safe routes to School, supporting local groups and interests and representing the Parish on committees and other local and regional organisations. 



From 4th May, blood taking will be by appointment only (GP routine requests). 

The new dedicated contact number is : 01904 724770. 


Boom Developments Ltd (via the Agent Pegasus Group) have applied to Selby District Council for an Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) opinion for a solar energy scheme to determine whether the project is likely to have sufficient environmental effects e.g. visual impacts, emissions to air and transport of fuel, to warrant an EIA.  The proposal consists of construction, operation, maintenance and decommissioning of a ground mounted solar farm laid out across fields at Osgodby Grange and Whitemoor Farm, Osgodby.

Local residents have received information concerning the proposal. There will be a Public consultation commencing on 30th April for 4 weeks.

The Library refurbishment is now complete and the Library is open for business. We look forward to seeing you soon. 

You can keep up to date with what's on at the Library on Facebook@barlbylibrary.

There will be safe measures in place including protective screens, hand sanitisers, and wipes and a one way system to assist with social distancing. Items which cannot be easily cleaned have been removed. A maximum of 6 customers (including one PC user if present) will be allowed in the building at any one time.

A family of 4 persons will be allowed in the Junior section if capacity allows. Slots of 15 minutes will be allocated unless the Library is quiet when this may be extended to 30 minutes. We are sure customers will understand and follow the guidelines to prevent queues forming.  

Face coverings are now mandatory in the Library (with some exemptions). A North Yorkshire Track and Trace system will also be in operation.
