Whitehaven Library

Library to re-open in August 2020

We are pleased to confirm that we will be opening on Monday 10 August 2020.

To protect the health and safety of our staff and customers we will have new Covid-secure measures in place and our opening times and offer will be slightly different.

To welcome you back to our library buildings, Library Hosts will greet you on arrival and explain the new arrangements.

There will be clear signage throughout our buildings to help everyone find their way around safely and hand sanitisers will be located at the entrance and exit points.

Not all of our usual activities will be available, but there will still be plenty of resources available for customers to enjoy.

If you can't wait, our online services continue to attract more and more people, and all library members can get free access to a whole host of online benefits including e-book and e-magazines whilst the The Library Edit highlights some of the best websites and online resources - all chosen by library staff, and helpfully grouped by theme, so if you have not tried them don't miss out.
