Staff will continue to wear masks around the Library and we ask our users and visitors to do the same, but they can be removed when seated.

The enquiry desk is staffed. Perspex screening remains to ensure face-to-face enquiries are safe for both users and staff.

Antibacterial products are available for users on each desk to clean the desk and accompanying computer equipment before use.
