Scunthorpe Central

Your community facility

Scunthorpe library has undergone a £1m refurbishment, as part of a bigger £60m investment programme for the town centre. Improvements to the building mean that many services are accessible under one roof in a central location.

Scunthorpe Central houses a spacious and refurbished library, as well as a number of other facilities and services.

Friendly and knowledgeable staff at the shared reception desk on the ground floor will be able to help you find the services you need.
