Library re-opening

by samalhamdani on 28 June, 2020

Oldham Library is reopening – with a few changes. From Monday, July 6 there will be a limited range of facilities, such as checking out books and using the computers.

Due to the 2m social distancing rules visitors won’t be able to browse the bookshelves. Instead, people will be able to choose from one of the genre packs we’ve prepared, each containing three books. 

Children’s books will also be available, with genre packs for different age groups. All available books will have been quarantined for 72 hours.

The library will be open Monday to Saturday 10am to 5pm.

The Lifelong Learning Centre and Gallery Oldham are not currently open to the public while they are being prepared to open safely. Services are continuing to be delivered online. 

Adults will be able to access to IT – for a maximum of one hour, per day, per customer – at set times. The toilets, café, gallery shop, children’s library and the study space will remain closed, for now in line with government guidelines.
