Dear Library Member

I am so pleased to be able to tell you that Wash Common Library is to re-open this week, from Tuesday afternoon.

Our new opening hours for the foreseeable future are:

Tuesday 2pm to 4pm
Saturday 10am - 12pm

(subject to volunteers available to staff the library)

We have given serious consideration to health and safety and have taken precautions to keep our visitors safe.

Please follow the guidelines on display in the library. We are only allowing three members of the public or one family unit into the library at anyone time, to allow for social distancing.

When you arrive at the library, please ask our volunteer staff if you are allowed to enter, place any returned books in the "Book quarantine Box" and then use the Hand Sanitiser provided.

Follow the one way system around the library. Any book touched, but not required should also be placed in a "Book quarantine Box", there are several placed around the library.

Books will be issued as normal, but returns will not be taken off your library record immediately as they will stay in quarantine for 72 hours.

Don't forget you can also reserve books on-line by logging into your library account and searching our catalogue on-line.

We are really looking forward to welcoming back to the library.
