All 18 libraries will reopen for open access without the need to make an appointment.

To ensure your safety library staff will continue and customers are encouraged, unless exempt, to wear face coverings or visors in the library as per Welsh Government guidance.

Perspex desk screens, barriers to reinforce 2m social distancing and COVID-19 safety notice will remain in place at all libraries.

Libraries are no longer required to quarantine library stock on their return or loan. However, we will continue to provide antibacterial wipes and hand sanitiser at all our libraries if you wish to clean the items before taking them home.

Councillor Ross Whiting, Cabinet Member for Education member for Learning and Leisure said: “After the tough last 18 months that we have all had during the pandemic, the reopening of all our libraries next week is such welcome news.

“We want to thank you all for your patience during the pandemic and look forward to welcoming existing and new customers to our libraries next Monday.”
