Libraries in Shropshire have once again opened their doors following the end of the latest national lockdown.
This means that customers will be able to go into their libraries to browse and to borrow library items. Access to library computers will also be available on an advance booking basis by contacting the relevant library.
All the required COVID-19 safety measures are in place, including quarantining of returned library items, altered layouts to enable social distancing, and limits on the numbers of people allowed in each library at the same time. Customers are required to wear a face covering and are asked to comply with NHS Test and Trace requirements.
With safety remaining a priority, library events and activities aren’t being reintroduced just yet, but in the meantime a couple of the most popular regular library events have moved online. Rhyme Time and Story Time sessions are now being run live every week via Zoom and you can get your invite by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Rhyme Times are on Mondays at 10.30am and Story Times are on Wednesdays at 10.30am.
