Six more Norfolk libraries reopening

Norfolk Library and Information Service is set to reopen an additional six locations in early August following its successful relaunch earlier this month.

The locations due to reopen are:

  • Caister Library (3 August)
  • Earlham Library (4 August)
  • Gaywood Library (3 August)
  • Hellesdon Library (3 August)
  • Poringland Library (3 August)
  • Sheringham Library (3 August)

          This will take the total number of libraries open in Norfolk to 19, after these 13 were opened in early July:

          • Acle Library
          • Dereham Library
          • Diss Library
          • Downham Market Library
          • Fakenham Library
          • Great Yarmouth Library
          • King’s Lynn Library
          • Mile Cross Library
          • Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library
          • Sprowston Library
          • Thetford Library
          • Wymondham Library

          Councillor Margaret Dewsbury, cabinet member for communities at Norfolk County Council, said: “It’s been wonderful to see how much people have enjoyed coming back to the library. I would like to thank our staff for their diligent work and pay tribute to the people of Norfolk who have worked with us to ensure the safety of everyone visiting the library.”

          The Library and Information Service will also be introducing a strong recommendation for visitors to wear a face mask when they visit the library from Monday 27 July.

          Norfolk’s fleet of mobile libraries is being adapted to allow for a safe resumption of service, which is due to take place in mid-August.

          The remaining sites will be assessed in stages so that the right safety measures can be put in place for them to reopen in the coming weeks.
