Dronfield Library to reopen from Tuesday 7th July

Dronfield Library to reopen from Tuesday 7th July

Derbyshire County Council closed all of their 45 libraries on 20th March 2020 due to the coronavirus.

They are now planning to reopen 7 libraries including Dronfield Library, on Tuesday 7th July 2020.

Residents must book an appointment to visit the library and people are being urged not to turn up without having arranged their appointment first.

From 7th July Dronfield Library will be open from 10am to 4pm Monday to Friday, and 10am to 2pm on Saturdays until further notice, with people being asked to arrange appointments direct with their local library.

'Book and borrow' appointments for people wanting to take out books, can be arranged over the phone or by email, and use of library computers can be arranged by phone only. Staff will not be able to assist people using computers.

All currently borrowed books and other items have been automatically renewed until 30 September 2020 and people are being urged not to bring them back unless they have made a 'Book and Borrow' appointment. No overdue charges will be incurred for books which are currently borrowed.

Library staff will monitor how the new systems put in place are working and ensure social distancing can be adhered to before Derbyshire County Council roll out the re-opening of other libraries across the county.
