North Lincolnshire Central Library


The library in Scunthorpe is North Lincolnshire’s Central Library. It was built in 1974 and looks rather like a modern church building outside but feels a bit dated inside.  It’s on the edge of a shopping area. It had to close for a month while a multi-storey car park next door was demolished and had its opening hours reduced in 2012.

The ground floor has the adult lending and children’s library.

The first floor has non-fiction and reference. I believe there is a another floor which is now offices.

Apprently the library hosts the Scunthorpe Trading Card Club (TCC)

“This takes place every Wednesday at the Central Library from 4pm to 6.45pm. Bring your own deck whether it’s Yugioh, Magic The Gathering, Buddyfight or Cardfight Vanguard and play or trade with other card gaming fans. We operate an official approved club running exclusive sanctioned events for Yugioh, Cardfight Vanguard and Pokemon. The Pokemon Club runs every Saturday.”
