Convener of the Community Planning and Regeneration Committee, Councillor Chris Kane, said: “Our much loved libraries offer more than just books, they are important community hubs that provide vital resources for so many of our residents.

We have extended the hours that our libraries are available so we can bring back the supply services for waste bags and hearing aid batteries which have always proved popular.”

Vice Convenor of the Community Planning and Regeneration Committee , Maureen Bennison added “This is another welcome step forward in the re-opening of our libraries as we begin to offer more and more services to our residents.

Safety remains our top priority and it is essential that we maintain this cautious, step-by-step approach, complying with national guidance and helping protect our communities and library workers.”
