We are thrilled that seven of our library sites are reopening from today – with safety and hygiene measures in place to protect our customers and staff.
Burtonwood and Warrington Libraries reopened their doors this morning. Orford will open at 12noon and Great Sankey at 2pm.
Tomorrow Lymm and Stockton Heath will reopen at 10am and Woolston at 2pm.
Customers should please note that the opening hours of the above libraries will be not be the same as pre-closure so please check times on our website before visiting.
To ensure visitors feel safe whilst in our libraries our reopening plans have focused on the safety of customers and staff, to ensure our customers can confidently borrow books in a friendly, safe and hygienic manner.
To do this effectively we have introduced some changes to the customer journey;
Although we have worked hard to make our libraries as safe as possible we understand some members may choose to not to visit at the moment. With that in mind, we have a number of additional services that might be of use:
Home Library Service: The Home Library Service operates for people who are normally housebound or find it hard to get to their nearest library for reasons such as mobility problems, illness or carer responsibilities.
At the present time we are currently able to expand this service on a temporary basis to support more people with this service, including people over 70, those shielding or self-isolating and others unable to make it in person to a library.
For more information contact email@example.com
Order and Collect: Our new Order and Collect service allows members to order and receive books without coming into the library. The process is simple; you let us know what type of books you enjoy; our library staff choose up to 5 books for you and issue them to your library card. You collect your books on an agreed date and time from Orford Jubilee Neighbourhood Hub – contact free and free of charge. The Order and Collect scheme are available for both adult and children’s fiction.
To register for the service call 01925 572504 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org including your full name and library card number with any enquiry.
