We are pleased to confirm that the Lit & Phil is now open again to members.
During this initial reopening period, members must book their visit in advance, whether it is to browse and borrow books/CDs, or just to return or collect pre-ordered items. To book a slot please telephone 0191 232 0192 or 07971956185 (mobile in use this week only) or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Members may book up to 2 one hour slots per day up to 3 times per week on different days.
As well as the Main Library, the Music/Committee Room may be used on request. During this first reopening period, the Silence/Reference Room may not be used by members.
From Monday 12th April the library's opening hours will be:
Mon, Tues, Thurs and Fri 10am - 12 noon, 1pm - 4pm
Wednesdays 10am-12 noon, 1pm-4pm, 5pm -7pm
Saturday opening will commence in May: 8th and 22nd 10am -1pm
We will continue to have social distancing measures in place, such as limited seating and the maintaining of a one-way system around the library. Face coverings must be worn in the building and the hand sanitisers available in the library should be used.
Members may request our home delivery/collection service, run by volunteers, or that books are sent by post.
