Customers will now be able to reserve access to computer stations, study tables and books for collection, subject to terms and conditions.

Limited walk-in access will also be available for browsing.

In efforts to minimise physical contact and protect customers and staff, the number of visitors will be restricted and opening hours limited.

We encourage you to continue enjoying Story Time with your children via Story Time Videos that our Children’s staff have created for you to watch In the comfort of your home. For tips about online safety, read this document.
