Following the lifting of Plan B Covid-19 restrictions, face coverings are no longer mandatory in libraries. To ensure the continued safety of our staff and customers, we would encourage you to wear a face covering when visiting our building and respect other people's space. Hand sanitising stations are available at each site.
