Eight more libraries to reopen across Norfolk

14 August 2020

Norfolk Library and Information Service is set to reopen a further eight locations with safety measures in place at each site.

The locations due to reopen next week will be:

Monday 17 August

  • Attleborough Library
  • Aylsham Library
  • Costessey Library
  • Cromer Library
  • Dersingham Library
  • Long Stratton Library
  • Wells Library

Tuesday 18 August 

  • Plumstead Road Library

This will take the total number of libraries open in Norfolk to 28 with plans in place to reopen the remaining sites in the coming weeks. Open library access remain unavailable across the library service and opening times have be changed accordingly.

Councillor Margaret Dewsbury, cabinet member for communities at Norfolk County Council, said:

“The hard work of our libraries team and the understanding shown by the people of Norfolk has allowed us to continue reopening more and more of our libraries. Each site is the centre of its community so we are keen to reopen each location as soon as it is safe to do so.”

Library users are required to wear a face covering as they browse the shelves, in line with the latest Government guidance.

Each library will also have a one-way system to allow for social distancing and hand sanitiser available to use on the way in and out of the library.

The latest information about opening times and the services on offer can be found on the Norfolk County Council website.
