Your library is now open, with safety measures in place in line with Government guidance.
All services are subject to change at short notice - you'll find more information here: www.southglos.gov.uk/librarychanges.
Open Access has now resumed at South Gloucestershire Libraries, available on a limited basis while operating with Covid-19 restrictions in place, initially on Saturday afternoons until 5pm and on Sundays between 8am – 5pm, to begin with.
A full range of services will be available to customers, including selecting books and DVDs, access to IT and printing facilities.
Customers will be required to follow Covid-19 guidance on social distancing and asked to wear a face covering while visiting. Anyone who is not registered to use Open Access can book an induction session from 5 July.
In 2019/20 there were 56,000 visits by 6770 customers to our libraries during Open Access hours. Introducing Open Access enabled our libraries to increase their opening hours by 80%, resulting in us being able to offer some of the highest number of library opening hours in England.
All libraries are open for people to choose their own books and there is substantial range for all ages and interests. Libraries are also re introducing ‘Rhyme Times’ for younger children, with sessions needing to be booked in advance.
Details of all the services available from South Gloucestershire libraries including Open Access is available at www.southglos.gov.uk/librarychanges or call 01454 865022.
