Phased Re-Opening of Library

Librarian with Facemask 03

With the generous assistance of the Buckinghamshire Council Library Services, Haddenham Community Library is planning to open its doors to the public on Tuesday 7th July for the first time since it was closed due to the coronavirus pandemic on 20th March.

The Trustees are delighted that even though the library will be offering a very reduced service, the community will be able to see this much loved and valued community resource 'waking up'.

There will be a phased re-opening and customers can expect social distancing, hygiene measures and limited access to be in place. It is a new and strange experience for us all and we will have to take things very carefully at first. We are looking forward to seeing our customers once again and we hope that they will understand that the library will look and feel rather different.

Details about our opening hours and services on offer are still being finalised and will be advertised within the next 2 weeks. Books out on loan will not attract any fines so borrowers don't have to worry about rushing back on the first day that we open our doors!

In the meantime remember that the terrific range of on line resources including a much expanded range of e-books and e-audio books is available to library members through www.buckinghamshire.gov.uk/libraries
