Coronavirus Update

ALL SEFTON LIBRARY BUILDINGS ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, THIS IS TO HELP REDUCE THE RISK OF SPREADING THE CORONAVIRUS.

Sefton Libraries are working towards re-opening their buildings, and are currently waiting for the official go ahead from the Government. In the meantime work is underway to install cleansing stations at entrances, create quarantine areas for returned items, and opening up our buildings to enable users to maintain social distancing rules. We hope to have all this work completed and signed off by our health and safety colleagues soon.

Once we have a confirmed opening date, we will publicise it on our website, social media pages and on our buildings.

We will also be re-commencing the Home Visit Service, with support from our wonderful volunteers. Staff will also start to contact our older library users, over 80's, to see if they would like to have books delivered to their home address. If you know anyone who would benefit from this service, or if you require any further information, please email - library.service@sefton.gov.uk

All library books out on loan will be renewed until 31st July.

Join us every Monday at 10:30 for our weekly virtual storytime 

Libraries understand the importance of enjoying stories together. Every Monday at 10.30am via the Sefton Libraries Facebook page, you and your toddler can enjoy watching one of our team read a pre-recorded story. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to our Libraries story and rhyme times when it is safe to do so.

For now, please enjoy our virtual Storytelling.
