Next Chapter for Libraries

News |

Local History LibraryFrom Monday, September 13th, library customers can now browse the shelves earlier and later with only Waltham Library closing during lunch for one hour only, and all libraries opening on Saturdays from 9am to 1pm.

Many of the libraries’ children’s activities also return with more activities resuming in October. See below for details.

Sue Wells, Lincs Inspire chief executive, said: “We look forward to seeing more of our regular customers back now we have extended our opening times and we have certainly missed the excitement and buzz from not running some of our weekly children’s activities.

“Little Readers will return from Monday September 13, and in October we look forward to welcoming back our Shake, Rattle and Read sessions into all libraries.”

Library customers are also reminded that the Local and Family History Room at Grimsby Central Library is also open. Following its closure due to COVID it reopened in August and has been busy helping customers delve into the resources, which include a treasure trove of local history information along with an Ancestry Library, the British Newspaper Archive and 19th Century British Newspapers. Booking is recommended for using the Microfilm readers and the Family History PC as tables are limited and the library service is committed to ensuring safe social distancing.

Lincs Inspire Libraries will continue to be vigilant about the ongoing risks associated with COVID-19. Cleaning regimes are robust and the Government QR Test and Trace code continues to be displayed. Customers are asked to give space to others when moving around our libraries, exercise good hand hygiene and respect other people’s choice in the wearing of face masks within the libraries.
