Kesgrave Library - June

Have you read everything on your ‘To Read’ shelf and are now desperate for something new? Kesgrave Library is open for customers to come in and choose books for themselves.

However, we understand that some customers may be feeling nervous about returning to browsing, so we will be continuing to run our Select and Collect service alongside the re-introduction of opening the library space. If you would like to continue to use this service, please ring us to arrange a time/date for collection of your requests.

Select & Collect – This service is open to any age group and has proved very popular. Staff select a variety of books for customers, based on the information you give us about the types of books and authors that you like to read. Staff can also reserve in any items for you if they are not available at Kesgrave.

Our opening hours are: -

  • Monday 10.00 – 1.00 p.m.
  • Tuesday 10.00 - 1.00 p.m./2.00 - 5.00 p.m.
  • Wednesday 2.00 - 5.00 p.m.
  • Thursday 2.00 - 5.00 p.m.
  • Friday 10.00 - 1.00 p.m./2.00 - 5.00 p.m.
  • Saturday 10.00 - 1.00 p.m.

Track & Trace – all customers who come into the library will be asked to either complete a Track & Trace form or to scan the library’s QR code on their phone, to log that they have been on site. All completed track and trace forms will be kept safely and destroyed after 21 days, if we are not contacted to say a customer has tested positive.

Face Masks – Please can we remind customers that it is a mandatory requirement (unless exempt), that they wear a face mask which covers their nose and mouth when collecting their requests or coming into the library. Thank you for your understanding.

Covid -19 Self-Test (Rapid Antigen Tests) – The library is a collection point for these tests. Please just pop along and ask staff for however many boxes you or your family require.

Facebook/Instagram - Staff will also continue to post information and activities on the Kesgrave Library Facebook page and Instagram account. Please ‘Like’ and ‘Follow’ our posts for up-to-date information.

Word Play Sessions – These sessions returned on Wednesday 19th May at the Kesgrave Community Centre. Due to the Covid restrictions, we have reduced capacity until guidelines change. To attend, you will need to ring the library to book a place. Tot Rock is 9.45 – 10.15 a.m. and Baby Bounce 10.45 – 11.15 a.m. Guidance on the requirements for the sessions will be explained when you book.

We look forward to seeing you all very soon. Thank you for all your support.
