Rutland County Museum

A temporary library service has opened up at Rutland County Museum while work is carried out to improve facilities at Oakham Library.

Plans to improve Oakham Library were agreed by Rutland County Council earlier this year. They include new interior lighting, flooring, ceiling and electrics.

Library services have moved a short distance to Rutland County Museum for the duration of the refurbishment but will return to normal as soon as the work is complete.

The museum-based library service opened for the first time on Wednesday 21st December and offers visitors the following:

  • Public computers
  • Free internet and Wi-Fi access
  • All online services
  • Book and DVD loans (reduced stock)
  • Latest magazines and newspapers (no back issues)
  • Reading groups
  • Requests, renewals and enquiries

Museum opening hours have increased from four to six days a week to accommodate the library and will be as follows:

Monday 9.30am – 5.00pm

Tuesday 9.30am – 5.00pm

Wednesday 9.30am – 5.00pm

Thursday 9.30am – 5.00pm

Friday 9.30am – 5.00pm

Saturday 9.30am – 4.00pm

Oakham Library receives 90,000 visits every year. The refurbishment will support long-term running of the library at its current location and means visitors can soon look forward to enjoying enhanced services and better facilities at the site.
