Kirkby Stephen Local Links and Library
I’m afraid the Centre is undergoing essential building works and we will be closed until Wednesday 3rd January 2024.
If you have an urgent query or a library query please contact Penrith Library on 01768 812100. For non-urgent enquries please phone 017683 71775 and leave a message on our answer phone, which we will be checking periodically. Alternatively email [email protected] and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
We have left a supply of hearing aid batteries at Upper Eden Visitors Centre – their opening hours are Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday 11.00 to 15.00.
Apologies for any inconvenience.
