KINVER Community Library is set to re-open next week following the winter lockdown.

The village library will be back in action from 10am on Tuesday April 6 with some services resuming on a restricted basis with strict Covid-19 safety measures in place, although there will be no public access to the building at this stage.

On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, from 10am to 1pm, the library will open for order and collect and return only services.

Borrowers will be able to return books to the rear entrance, using a one-way system – with no fines incurred for overdue books – and can also collect pre-ordered books at the door. Only pre-ordered books will be issued.

Library chairman Paul Wooddisse said: “We are thrilled to be open for business once more, after the long winter months of lockdown. It will be brilliant to see friends old and new at our door. We aim to offer a safe, efficient service for our community, with a warm welcome.”

Computer and copying services will not be available and there is no access to toilet facilities.

People can order books by calling 01384 872348 or by completing an order form available from the library team.

Requests can also be made via the online catalogue -
