Status update 28 October 2020
Staffing issues following our assignment to “tier 3” of lockdown restrictions have resulted in a minor change to service hours. We are now open for “limited browsing” on Monday and Friday afternoons from 2-4pm. There are marked zones to encourage social distancing, and a one-way system in operation. Users are required to wear a face covering. Children will not be allowed in but adults may choose books on their behalf from the children’s library. There is limited access to public computers, printing and photocopying facilities.
Our “click and collect” service is still available. You can order books and hearing aid batteries in three ways.
- Using a form on the web site using this link. This is the preferred method.
- By completing a printed pre-order form (available from Key Homecare, next to Cello) and dropping it in the mailbox by the library entrance
- By phoning in your order to 0114 2377657. The phone will only be staffed at times when we’re open.
The “collect” sessions operate from 10am – 12.00 on Monday and Friday mornings and from 2-4pm on Wednesday afternoons
The council-run libraries are also offering order and collect services. For further information and opening times click here.
Our Open Gardens weekend on 5/6 September raised £1,100. Our thanks to the gardeners who opened and the many visitors who visited.
We haven’t set any dates yet to re-start our indoor “non-core” services such as coffee mornings, knit and natter, book club, chatterbooks, evening talks or film nights.
Our half-term storywalk is available up to and including Sunday 1 Nov. Follow the storyboards to read the tale of Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam. View or download a map here or pick up a printed copy from Key Homecare
A good way to keep up to date with what’s going on is to subscribe to our monthly e-newsletter. More info here.
