SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Welshpool’s Powysland Museum, now co-sharing with Welshpool Library at Y Lanfa / The Wharf, will reopen on August 1.

It is also hoped that Powys Library Service will extend their services during August and early September.

All developments will run alongside the current order and collect library book scheme operating from seven sites, which will gradually extend to other libraries. It will continue to be offered for the long term, for those readers who would prefer a non-contact service. Deliveries of books which have been quarantined are provided across the county by volunteers.

The second phase of library recovery will see computer use, printing, scanning, copying and council transactions available to the public by appointment only, with computer use for a maximum of one hour.

Further recovery work will see the introduction of short slots for readers to be able to browse and select books for themselves. Residents will be asked to comply with safety procedures, which may vary locally depending on the premises.

Opening hours will be restricted to enable staff to carry out additional duties safely. Contact details will be taken for those making computer bookings or browsing, for contact tracing purposes.

It will not be possible to open some of the smallest libraries or the mobile libraries due to staff redeployments to critical services and difficulties of social distancing.

Exact dates and times for library services will be publicised locally once confirmed.
