Charlbury Library - Opening on Wednesday 7th October

Exciting news…Charlbury Library is re-opening Wednesday 7th October!!!

The Library's new weekly opening hours are:

Mondays 10am-1pm

Wednesdays 2pm-5pm

Fridays 2pm-5pm

The Community Centre is open as usual, but at all other times the Library will be cordoned off and the self-service machine switched off.  The Library opening hours will be under regular review as the Covid-19 situation changes.

As you might expect, things will be very different for the time being, with hand sanitising for all and mask wearing for the over 11’s mandatory (with some health exceptions).  In line with all other Oxfordshire libraries, and in conjunction with the Community Centre, we also require visitors to complete the paper Test & Trace form or scan the NHS Covid-19 app with their smartphone on arrival.

In order to keep everyone safe, there will be a limited number of customers allowed into the library space at any one time and the toilets and all touchpoints around the Community Centre/Library are sanitised regularly throughout the day.  Sanitising wipes will also be available next to the computer/photocopier/self-service machine for customers to use if required.

All items to be returned must be put into our red quarantine crates, which are placed just inside both of the Community Centre doors.  These crates will be sealed for a minimum of 72 hours and the contents then removed from the customer’s account by staff.  You can return your items into the crates at any time while the Community Centre is open.

During the Library opening hours…

  • The self-service machine will be available for borrowing and renewing items, and for viewing your account (please remember your Library card!)
  • 1 public computer will be available, with usage limited to 30 minutes per visit
  • Printing and photocopying facilities will be available
  • Books can be browsed and borrowed as usual and Reservations can be collected
  • Staff will be available at the counter to assist with your queries

Please note that the self-service machine will not accept cash or card payments for the time being and that cash is the only payment option at the counter till.  Alternatively, you can now pay your charges online by logging into your Library account with your Library card and PIN number.

We look forward to seeing our customers again very soon!!!
