This is to alert our customers to the fact that as from Tuesday 11th August anyone visiting the library will need to wear a face covering unless they have a legitimate reason not to do so.
Libraries are included in the Government guidance making the wearing of face coverings in public indoor spaces mandatory. Staff will be on the door to remind visitors of the requirement to wear a face covering and as this is a mandatory requirement we do have the right to refuse entry to anyone who does not have a valid exemption. We hope this will not be necessary and that clear signs displayed outside the library and a staff member wearing a face covering will help visitors to adapt to this new requirement.
Children under the age of 11 years are not required to wear face coverings.
You can get more information about the government regulations and exemptions here Choose Libraries and click on visiting a library during corona virus
If you are inclined to read the entire government guidance then please go to: www.gov.uk/coronavirus (COVID19) choose Protecting yourself and others then click on Face coverings: when to wear one and how to make one.
Thank you for your patience and co-operation as we all learn to work together in these very challenging times.
