Library as Covid Constraints Ease

Haddenham Library

As from Tuesday 20th July, Haddenham community library will:

  • no longer be limiting the number of people entering the building
  • stop quarantining your returned books
  • return access to the public computers
  • resume the self- service photocopying and scanning facilities

Staff will be following working safely guidance in order to help everyone in the library stay safe, protect others and reduce the spread of the virus. So, in order to help reduce the risk of transmission of the COVID-19 virus, the library will:

  • Retain the Perspex counter screens
  • Expect and recommend that customers continue to wear face coverings
  • Encourage customers to maintain social distancing when browsing or queuing
  • Request that customers practice improved hygiene using the sanitizing hand gel on entry and hand wipes using a public computer or CAP phone
  • Retain Track and Trace QR code posters

Following the advice of the government the library volunteer staff and manager will be wearing face coverings when working in public spaces.

For your peace of mind and safety, staff will keep the library well- ventilated and maintain high levels of cleanliness, regularly cleaning surfaces people frequently touch.

Staff are working on plans to eventually return the library's soft furnishing from storage and extend the opening hours. If all goes to plan and restrictions are not re-imposed, the library should be ready to taking bookings for hire and hosting limited activities from 7th September.

The Board of Trustees, Library Manager and volunteer staff would like to say a big thank you for your co-operation with the measures they have had to put in place throughout the pandemic.

They will of course review and adjust these as and when the situation improves.

Staff understand that COVID19 will be a feature of our lives for the foreseeable future and please rest assured that they will continue to make every effort to manage the risk to visitors and others whilst in the Haddenham Community Library so that visits are as secure and comfortable as that can possibly make it.
