Closure of Haddenham Community Library
Following advice from Central Government and the Buckinghamshire Library Service the Board of Trustees has decided that:
- From 5 pm on Friday March 20th the library will be CLOSED to the public until further notice
- The library will be open as usual on Thursday March 19th and Friday March 20th from 9.30am until 5.00pm
- On those days the library will ONLY be issuing and returning books, magazines and audio books, all other activities in the library are suspended
- Only one public access computer will be available for use in the library until we close
- Self-service photocopying facilities will remain available until we close
This closure will be for an undetermined period of time and will be kept under review by the Trustees. The safety and welfare of our volunteers, manager and customers is of paramount importance and so our much valued library service has had to be suspended. Borrowers are reminded of the wealth of books and magazines available in the e-library and should check out the BCC libraries website for information on how to access these resources.
Borrowers with outstanding loans need not worry about being unable to return their books as fines will be waived. Detailed information about the library closure and your questions answered will be posted in due course on the Buckinghamshire County Council website. Please consult both their and our website for further information as and when it becomes available. Thank you all for your patience and understanding in what is an unprecedented set of circumstances for everyone.
