Somerset Library Service has confirmed the reopening of the next group of libraries from Monday 13th July, which will be including Bridgwater. The library will reopen at 10.00am. Customers will be able to return any items they had borrowed prior to lockdown; collect or place any orders via our New Order & Collect service and book a public computer. The computers will be available on a pre-booked basis for 60 minutes per day. Due to social distancing measures, the number of available computers will be reduced but we hope those who otherwise have no internet access will be able to benefit.
Bridgwater Library also accommodates the Registration Service which has just started offering face to face appointments. Again, all the appropriate safety measures have been put in place and the registration processes modified in line with the General Register Office requirements.
Bridgwater Town Council Deputy Leader and Portfolio Holder for Community has welcomed the news saying “Let’s hope things will start getting gradually back to normal sooner rather than later.”
The mobile library service should be up and running from Monday 21st July and customers have been contacted – we are processing numerous advance orders for them. Home Library Service deliveries have also just restarted in Sedgemoor, delivered by RVS volunteers.
Please get in touch if you have any queries about the reopening process.
