Community Library Hooray! The Community Library in Chalfont St Peter is planning to re-open on Tuesday 7th July. We will be following advice from the government and Buckinghamshire Council and have put many safety measures in place in order to welcome our customers back. For our volunteers’ safety and theirs, we are offering a streamlined service.
At first we will be open only in the mornings from 10 till 1, on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. After a couple of weeks we hope to extend this to afternoon opening on the weekdays. Several of our volunteers are unable to return to our library yet, so we are working with reduced numbers - just like many other organisations.
All customers will be asked to sanitise their hands upon entry and observe safe distancing from others. Numbers entering the library will be restricted and a one-way system has been devised to allow ease of movement around the stacks. Books should be returned at the door, following which they will be quarantined.
