Yes, the library is open but only for Tuesday - Friday 10.30 - 12.30 and 3 - 5 and on Saturday 9.30 - 12 for loans and returns and a computer for quick printouts only. All other services are currently not available.
With the Gallery about to reopen could you please learn to stop and read the signs as you enter and pass through the Hub as restrictions are changing and there will be limitations on the number of people allowed in each section.
The library is also registered as a COVID safe business. This means that we have a completed safety plan that has been updated when restrictions have been modified, that the library is a safe and clean environment with physical distancing and staff wellbeing implemented. This includes asking all members who visit the library to use the hand sanitiser upon entry and exit.
Please read carefully as there are changes to hours and services provided. The Library will proceed to the next phase if no issues occur in the previous phase.
