Nottinghamshire County Council’s Libraries and Archive services, managed on its behalf by Inspire, have announced plans to resume services in line with Government guidance.
Plans are already underway to help facilitate the potential return of some libraries from July 6, in line with the ‘third step’ of the Government’s national recovery plan.
The County’s Libraries and Archives closed on March 20 due to the Coronavirus restrictions and have been missed by communities across the county. Inspire are now planning how to resume services in a safe and socially distanced way.
The County Council have confirmed that the priority will be staff and customer safety, which means they will have to operate in a different way with a reduced service, limited capacity in buildings, additional cleaning measures and guidelines in place for social distancing.
Inspire will issue more details on opening times and range of services in the coming weeks via their social media channels and online on their website: https://www.inspireculture.org.uk/.
