Libraries COVID updates

Keeping you safe

We have introduced a variety of changes to our layouts and procedures to make sure you can use the libraries safely.

We will limit the number of customers in each library at any one-time, social distancing will be in place, and there will be no seating, study spaces, meeting rooms, toilets or events at this time.

Visitors should be prepared to queue as well as follow signs and instructions from staff. We have increased cleaning, distanced furniture and computers, added hygiene screens and quarantine books between uses. Hand sanitiser will be available at the door, and screens are setup at the counters.

Please also be aware that access to books in some libraries will remain limited due to the need to ensure all environments are able to support social distancing. All returned items will be quarantined for 72 hours before being available for loan.
