Customer update - Central Library reopening

Central Library and Archive will reopen weekdays only from Monday 13th July, 10am-3pm. Opening hours will be reviewed, but at present it is to help us to deep clean before and after opening.

Community libraries remain closed for now. We are working to ensure they have appropriate equipment, signage and protocols in place to reopen safely and we are aiming to gradually reopen some libraries in the coming weeks.

Visiting Central Library

All visitors will be asked to complete a form with your contact details to help with the NHS Test and Trace programme. You will need to bring a pen as we are unable to share pens at present. Please place the forms in the secure box by the exit when you leave the library.  The information will be stored securely for 21 days then confidentially destroyed.

We've also introduced a number of safety measures and changes to how you access some services which you can find below.
