The most recent Government guidance on face coverings was announced on 31/07/20:
In line with this, for members of the public, from 8 August the places where you will have to wear a face covering in England will be expanded to include libraries.
Therefore from 8 August the wearing of face coverings will be mandatory in all LiveWire library spaces including at our hub sites. Whilst making this change, we acknowledge there are some circumstances, for health, age or equality reasons, where people are not able nor expected to wear face coverings.
We hope this will provide our customers with the on-going confidence and re-assurance that they can borrow books in a friendly, safe and hygienic manner. Hand sanitiser will continue to be provided for use at key points through the customer journey.
