Calverley Library is to re-open on Thursday for the first time since lockdown began in March – and it’s hoped Farsley Library will follow soon after.
Calverley Library closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic while Farsley had been undergoing a conversation into a community hub before lockdown came into force.
The news has been welcomed by Cllr Peter Carlill (Lab, Calverley & Farsley). He said:
“It’s great to receive news that Calverley Library is planned to reopen on Thursday, and Farsley will hopefully follow soon after following the successful refurbishment works.
“There will be a range of measures in place to ensure safety of people using the library and library staff, including a limit to the number of people inside at anyone time and visitors will need to sanitise their hands before handling books and wear a face mask for the duration of their visit.
“You will be able to browse books as usual, but can call and reserve books if you prefer just to pick them up.
“I’m really pleased that the refurbishments to Farsley Library were able to be continued during the closure and I was following these closely to ensure its reopening would not be delayed much further.”
