Planning ahead for phased reopening of libraries
Somerset Libraries are planning the phased re-opening of library buildings with the aim to start welcoming people back as early as possible in July.
It won’t be business as usual straight away, however, and Somerset County Council’s library buildings will look and feel quite different, as some processes temporarily change.
Social distancing measures will be in place and a ‘personal shopper’ service will be available as customers will not initially be able to browse. Staff will be available to select items for customers based on popular titles, specific interests and favourite authors.
The Somerset Mobile Library Service should also be back on the road later in the year.
