Drop in on the Wednesday or Friday for support from the team if you need it. On Thursday 30th, the team will be delivering an activity session including coffee and cake for anyone who wants some company and doesn’t have any plans on the day.
It is important that you continue to adhere to our health and safety policies when using the libraries. You are required to wear a face mask inside the libraries, unless you are medically exempt from doing so, and you must also practise social distancing.
We hope you all have a lovely and restful Christmas break.
