Planning your visit

We are welcoming you back with the following safety measures:

On entering the library we ask that you please:
 sanitise your hands
 scan the QR code
 If you are unable to scan the QR code, then please fill out a Track & Trace slip with your name, contact telephone/email and the date and then post the slip into the box.

Following government guidelines the wearing of face masks is currently mandatory unless you are exempt.

There are anti-bacs wipes for you to wipe the pen before use and a PPE disposal bin for your used wipes.
We encourage you to wear face coverings in our libraries and to keep 2 metres distance from other library users and our library staff.

Thank you for helping us to keep our libraries safe.

Take a look at our Opening Times page for the latest updates on when we are open and information on accessibility.
