What is the "Extended Access" System?
Westbury library is one of three in Bristol to have been fitted with automatic doors as part of an "Extended Access" system. This means that, provided you are a library member and have registered for the scheme with the library, you can use the building at times when it would otherwise be closed.
The first step is to pop into the library with your membership card and have a word with one of the staff. You will need to complete a short form, giving your name, address and library card number and confirming that you have had the procedures explained to you, and you will be registered. You will have to be over 16 years old to register.
Once you have registered, all you have to do to enter the library outside normal hours is to place your library card in the reader to the left of the door and enter your 4 figure PIN code - if you don't already know this (and most of us don't) the staff can give you this when you register.
The library opening and extended access hours are:
|Day||Open Hours||Extended Access|
|Monday||2:00pm to 7:00pm||8:00am to 7:00pm|
|Tuesday||11:00am to 4:00pm||8:00am to 7:00pm|
|Wednesday||11:00am to 4:00pm||8:00am to 7:00pm|
|Thursday||11:00am to 4:00pm||8:00am to 7:00pm|
|Friday||11:00am to 4:00pm||8:00am to 7:00pm|
|Saturday||11:00am to 4:00pm||8:00am to 7:00pm|
**Sunday afternoon opening coming soon**
Please be aware that, if you are in the library at the end of normal opening hours, ie 4:00pm Tuesday to Saturday, you will have to leave the building for 15 minutes, to allow library staff to complete end-of-day procedures.
