Beautiful Castle Library [0,70] is located inside an old decommissioned fort. It had grown over the years to become an establishment of which the community was justifiably proud.

Barricade Policy

Libraries may be barricaded according to the community plan, as Castle Library conforms to the Nixbank Barricade Plan which is itself in compliance with the Uniform Barricade Policy* of greater Malton. Nixbank is a peculiar suburb in that it only has 47 buildings. Castle Library is to be kept at Extremely Heavily Barricaded (EHB) level.

It was built in the 18th century to serve as a fort to help protect the North Riding of Yorkshire.

In 1999, a modern addition was built onto the front of the old building in order to update its appearance. People felt it looked more like a prison than a library, so the forbidding entrance was covered over by a large, airy foyer. The same brown stone from the original quarry was used for its facing, to tie the older fort in with the new structure. The bright lobby was filled with plants and small tables for the use of customers of the new fund-raising coffee kiosk manned by volunteers from the Friends of the Library. The "Friendly Cafe", as it was called, offered teas, coffees and cold soft drinks as well as muffins, chocolate chip cookies and cinnamon rolls.

All that changed with the Malton Outbreak. Now only the top floor lies unscathed. The head librarian locked and barricaded both doors, then climbed onto the roof using a maintenance rope. She then abseiled down to the ground and managed to remove the escape line by whipping the bowline-knotted loop up free of the merlon in the crenellated wall, thus making it impossible for PKers to climb in.
