What’s happening at the libraries?

We hope our community is staying safe and healthy during this very cold weather.

The threat of Covid has brought many changes over the past 18 months, but we are currently operating under relatively few restrictions:

  • Registering for contact-tracing before entering remains mandatory
  • We are continuing to do an extra clean of library surfaces
  • Please practise physical distancing
  • Wednesday mornings are now open to all ages 😊

Remember, your libraries offer you a warm, welcoming and accessible place.

Stay tuned for more exciting news to come… we will soon be launching some new e-resources for our community to enjoy from home – more magazines, comics for all ages, and a new language-learning platform!
