We Are Open Again !!

From tomorrow at 2pm we will be open again.   Social distancing and  safety measures are in place and we are ready to welcome you back. Please follow the signs  as the entrance is now via the side gate. The flow of customers into the library will be monitored carefully to allow for distancing and we ask that everyone entering the library wears a face covering.

Welcome Back Everyone.

We are delighted to be re-opening from August 12th.

As you will appreciate we have had to temporarily change things about to conform to Government Guidelines so that we are able to do this safely.
We will be opening on Wednesday afternoons and Saturday mornings for the time being.
You will be asked to wear a face covering whilst in the library and use the hand sanitizer provided. We are also assisting Public Health England (PHE) on the Covid-19 Test and Trace service so we will be asking you for basic contact details when entering the library.
We will be operating a one- way system to allow for social distancing and the layout inside the library has been  slightly changed too. Entrance to the library will be via the side gate and exit will be through the main door, just follow the signs. Books can be dropped off in the letterbox anytime or in the boxes provided when the library is open.

The public computers will not be avilable but the photocopier will be available providing correct change is used. ( b&w 25p per copy A4)

We look forward to seeing you soon.
