Library services return to Scunthorpe

Library services are set to return to Scunthorpe following a period of suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Services at Scunthorpe Central, including browsing for books, are due to resume from Wednesday 9 September.

People will also be able to pre-book study spaces and use the self-service printing facilities.

Access to one-to-one support from registrars, Action Station and Citizens Advice will be available in person as well as digitally.

Bookable access to computers will resume on 14 September.

Current services, such as click and collect for books, will still be available for customers who do not want to browse.

North Lincolnshire Council say that local libraries have put measures in place to protect visitors and staff.

All visitors must wear face coverings.

Hand sanitiser is available around libraries and an enhanced cleaning programme is in place.

The number of people accessing the buildings will also be limited, with a one-in-one-out system in place.

Libraries will be closed between 12 noon and 1pm to allow extra cleaning to take place.

The vast majority of council services have continued during the pandemic, with many introducing digital services.

Sadly, some services had to be suspended altogether.

North Lincolnshire Council says it has plans to restore and renew these services to local people when it is safe to do so.
