Our Library is now Open

We are pleased to announce that we will open to the public for limited browsing from Monday 12 April, in line with Government guidance and regulations.

Initially we will be open Mondays and Wednesdays 10am to 3pm and will look to expanding open hours as soon as we can

We have been assessed as COVID-secure, with steps in place to minimise risk.

Members will be able to enter the library and browse for a maximum of 30 minutes, with controls on the maximum number of people allowed into the building at any one time in place. PCs will be available to book in advance, or for walk-up customers, for a maximum of one hour. Printing and photocopying facilities are also available, while all issues of books will be via self-service.

In line with COVID guidelines, all visitors are required to wear a face covering, unless medically exempt. All customers are asked to sanitise their hands on entry to the library and to use disinfectant wipes to wipe down any equipment used before and after use. Social distancing is required and signage is in place to re-enforce these risk mitigation measures. Track and trace will also continue to be in place.

In line with the government’s roadmap, as national restrictions are gradually lifted over the next few months, we will expand opening hours and the range of services available.
