COVID-19 update 12/06/2020

The Resource Centre will be open for pre-booked visits on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10am until 1pm.  There will be one Library Assistant on duty.

Six computers, suitably socially distanced, are available for private research.  You MUST book online NO LATER THAN THE DAY BEFORE you wish to visit.  You will see that bookings times are staggered to avoid congestion at the front desk, and that each time slot is for two hours.  Members will be able to visit once each week.  No unauthorised person will be permitted to enter the Resource Centre without a booking.  The Centre will close at 1 pm. For those who are unable to book online, you can ring the Library Office for a booking to be made over the phone, during the new shorter opening hours.

 No printing will be available (to minimise touching printer buttons, paper drawers, touch screen etc) so please remember to bring your own USB to save the information you discover.  No money or credit card facilities will be available.  Please bring your own water as the kitchen is off-limits.  Bathroom facilities are available as usual.

Cleaning wipes for computer keyboard and mouse will be beside each computer as well as hand sanitiser for personal use.  Masks and gloves are not required but if you wish to wear your own, please feel free to do so.  Wiping clean the keyboard and mouse of the computer you use is your responsibility.

We ask that you are patient as we negotiate this first step together, and be assured we are keen to open more fully as soon as possible.  The health and safety of all members is our priority, and we are grateful for those Library Assistants who have volunteered their time under these new circumstance.

Bookings can be made through the Member’s Area website under Resources > Bookings

We look forward to seeing you next week.
