Polesworth Library is now offering a limited number of services.

 

COVID-19 precautions:

  • Quarantining and cleaning measures for returned books will be in place, before they are reused, to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.  Your returned items may not be removed from your account for up to 5 days.
  • Protect yourself and others from coronavirus. In line with Government guidance you are required to wear a face covering when in the library.  Please do not visit the library if you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus.
  • Libraries are government designated venues where a system must be in place to request and record contact details of their customers, visitors, and staff to help break the chains of transmission of coronavirus. We will therefore collect your name and contact details, at Grab & Go libraries, to support NHS Test and Trace
