COVID-19 - Reopening our libraries
Making your libraries COVID-secure
While preparing for the resuming of library services, Swindon Library & Information Service have complied with the government’s guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19. A COVID-19 risk assessment has been completed.
Thorough cleaning, handwashing and hygiene procedures are in place in line with guidance and all reasonable steps have been taken to maintain a two-metre distance between staff and customers, where possible. Where a two-metre distance cannot be maintained, steps have been taken to manage transmission risk.
During collection and returns, we would ask all customers to use the hand sanitiser provided. You are required to wear a mask or face covering when visiting the library. Please ensure you arrive wearing your mask or face covering.
All books and other items returned to us will be quarantined for 72 hours to reduce the possibility of infection. While collecting or returning items, you may experience some socially-distanced queuing as we will operate a one-in, one-out policy. This will ensure the maximum number of people inside our libraries stays within guidelines.
