Following the re-introduction of what is in effect a national 'lockdown,' version 3, the Buckinghamshire Council has decided to close all its libraries until further notice. This means that as well as Community Libraries such as Haddenham, the central library in Aylesbury will be shut until further notice.
The Click and Collect service previously offered by the county libraries has also been suspended until further notice as library staff will be redeployed to support the mass vaccination programme and work to support the vulnerable and shielding members of society.
Limited access to public computers will be available at the Council Access Points (CAPs) sites in the Buckinghamshire Council Offices in Walton Street, Aylesbury, the Gateway, Aylesbury, King George V Drive, Amersham and Queen Victoria Road, High Wycombe.
As before borrowers need not worry about returning books out on loan as all loans have automatically been extended and no fines will be charged once the libraries are open for returns. Also there is no interruption to the on line library services providing a wide range of magazines, audio books, newspapers and books for all ages.
Full details can be found on the Buckinghamshire Council website at www.buckinghamshire.gov.uk/libraries
Please visit our website for information and developments at your community library in Haddenham.
From all of us at the library: the trustees, the volunteers and the manager, Sarah Whitmore we urge you to stay at home and keep safe and we look forward to welcoming you back into the library once again after the lockdown is lifted.
Chair, HCL Board of Trustees
