Oxfordshire County Council has announced that the county’s libraries will return to pre-pandemic opening hours from today (6th September).
During the pandemic, hours were reduced to allow additional safety measures to be monitored by staff. As these have been eased over the past few months, evening and Saturday opening hours can be restored.
Measures remain in place across the libraries to reflect government guidance and safety messages from Public Health England. Users are reminded to keep socially distant from others when visiting and not to visit if you feel unwell. Alongside this, library staff are gradually reinstating the services that users value so much, including events, rhymetimes and book groups.
Residents can visit the county council’s library webpage to check the opening hours for their local library.
