Visiting our Libraries

We have put together some information points that may help you with any queries you have when planning a visit to your local library.

When visiting the Library we ask that customers:

  • Stay at home if they feel unwell
  • Return all library stock, don’t worry if it is late – you won’t be charged!
  • Use the hand sanitisers  that we have in our libraries (even on gloves)
  • Limit their time in the building
  • Ensure that only one person at a time is using the Public Access Computers and for a maximum of one hour
  • Ensure all children 12 and under, are accompanied by an adult when visiting the library
  • Use the self-service issue machines where available, our staff are happy to show you how these work
  • Wear a mask or face covering, unless exempt for medical reasons

To ensure a safe and enjoyable visit our library staff will:

  • Have enhanced cleaning procedures in place to ensure all areas are clean and safe
  • Have installed screens at all Library desks as a safety measure
  • Provide hand sanitiser for all visitors
  • Clean and sanitise computers after every use

When using the printing or photocopying service:

  • Libraries will accept card or cash payments, when paying by cash, please have exact change if possible

Toilet facilities in the Library:

  • Toilet facilities are available in some libraries, but not all libraries will have this facility. We ask that customers  clean down areas after using with the cleaning materials provided.
