Our current and regular opening times are: Monday, Tuesdays & Thursday 9am – 5.30pm and Saturday 10am – 1pm.

We have carefully assessed, in line with government’s guidelines to make sure that social distancing can be maintained. The measures include arrangements for returned books to be stored separately for 72 hours, a new cleaning regime and physical measures such as screens and signs.

We can have 30 people within the building and ask customers to wear face coverings whilst inside the library, sanitise hands on arrival, follow the one-way system and place any books that you touch but decide not to buy or take out into the crates provided.

We have the following services on offer:
• Returning books within the foyer in crates provided
