Libraries operated by Buckinghamshire Council will start to reopen from Monday 12th April 2021 onwards.
Buckinghamshire libraries are looking forward to reopening their doors and welcoming customers back with the recommended COVID-19 safety measures in place, however at busy times people may be asked to queue.
The opening times may also by slightly shorter at the moment, but libraries will be increasing these as soon as they are able to do so.
Book borrowing, computer hire, printing and information services will be available – but libraries will be unable to provide newspapers, study areas or group activities. Outstanding loans are extended to the end of April 2021 and no fines will be charged before then.
In addition, to support the NHS Test and Trace initiative, staff will ask customers to use the NHS App or provide contact details when they enter a library. However, this information will only be used for this purpose and will be destroyed after 21 days.
Customers planning to visit their local library should check the opening hours by going to the Buckinghamshire Council libraries web page at www.buckinghamshire.gov.uk/libraries.
Customers who would prefer not to visit a library in person can use the eLibrary service to borrow books, magazines and newspapers online.
