Libraries COVID updates

What to expect

In line with Government guidance, we are asking all customers to a wear a face covering and will ask you for your name and phone number when you enter the library for the NHS Test and Trace programme.

As set out in the Privacy Notice, we will keep this information securely and it will only be shared with the NHS Test and Trace programme if we are asked for it.

These limited services will be available at all libraries within the current reduced opening hours. They will be kept under constant review to ensure they are being delivered in the safest way possible. The layouts of the libraries have changed to enable people to easily follow social distancing guidance, which means fewer books and computers are available.

We will be encouraging people to continue to use our eLibrary where they can so that we can manage customer numbers safely.

If you have any questions regarding the reopening of libraries or available services: contact us online
