When did the Library building re-open?
Last Updated: Jul 16, 2021     Views: 779

The Library building re-opened on Monday 6th July following the first lockdown in the UK.


Although there is no longer a legal mandate that people wear a face covering when in the library from the 19th of July 2021, personal responsibility is important and we expect people to continue to wear them unless exempt, particularly when social distancing cannot be maintained for example when walking round the building. We also ask everyone to respect and support everyone who continues to wear coverings.
