8 October, 2021

Libraries will reopen for fully vaccinated people only. Initially, the libraries will have a staged reopening from Monday 11 with slightly modified hours. This allows us to trial new health safeguards including practices like additional cleaning of computers outside of the public hours.  Normal operating hours will resume as soon as it is safe to do so.

Customers attending the Council facilities will need to check in and provide evidence of vaccination (or medical exemption)If evidence cannot be provided, staff cannot provide service. Social distancing and face masks are also still required in indoor settings.
