Ashton Library Temporary Closure

Return to Libraries homepageAshton Library is temporarily closing from 3pm on 6 November for approximately 12 weeks for building works to boost fire protection. 

The temporary closure is to carry out works on the voids between floors in the building to install additional fire detection equipment. Absence of fire detection in voids is not against British fire safety standards but the work is required by the insurers to reduce risk and reduce insurance premiums for the building.

A limited service will be available from 22 November on Level 1 at Tameside One, Market Place, Ashton.

In addition, from Monday 8 November the staffed opening hours at Droylsden, Dukinfield and Stalybridge Libraries will be extended to provide users with wider options for alternative access.

Tameside Libraries Information Service will be based at Stalybridge Library, 0161 342 2031.

You’ll still be able to access the full range of library services while the library is closed. You can use any of the other seven libraries throughout Tameside to:eReading

  • Borrow, renew and return library items. A book drop-off service will also be provided at Tameside Local Studies and Archives Service on Cotton Street East, Ashton-Under-Lyne, OL6 7BY.
  • Use the printing and photocopy service.
  • Use our computers or free Wi-Fi. Computers and Wi-Fi will also be available at The Local Studies Library where booking is recommended..
  • Remember there is a range of online services and resources available 24/7.


Items borrowed or renewed at Ashton Library in the three weeks preceding the temporary closure will be given an extended loan period until 24 January 2022. Fines will not accrue on any items borrowed from Ashton Library whilst the main library is closed.
