The library will begin a limited re-opening on Tuesday 7 July at 2pm with a few changes necessitated by the current situation. There will be a one-way system in operation with library visitors entering through the BACK (fire) door and exiting by the front door. To adhere to social distancing there will be five visitors allowed in the main library at any time and one family in the children’s area. There will be increased hygiene and cleaning routines, returned books will be quarantined for 72 hours before being put back on the shelves and the same process will apply to any books browsed but not taken out. To facilitate this quarantine period the library will only open for two days a week, Tuesday and Friday between 2pm and 4pm. The book shop will be open but no library activities, such as Knit and Natter and EmbarrasSING, will be resuming yet and no refreshments served. The library will be a near cashless operation with no library charges and the payment for any books from the shop to be put into the donations box.
