We are open properly once more!!

It’s been a long road we’ve all travelled together but, hopefully, we’ve finally reached journey’s end. Gresford Community Library is fully open – there are no appointments, and no need to order ahead.

We want everyone who visits us to feel safe, and we understand that there is still some anxiety out there, especially among the over 60s like those of us who staff the library – we’re going to ensure that there is plenty of room for people to social distance if they wish, and we will still have hand sanitiser freely available for you to use when you arrive.

Most of our visitors are more comfortable if they, and the people in the room with them, wear a face covering so, for now, we’re going to ask our library users to continue to cover up when they come to see us. As things improve, and we all start to get our confidence back, we’ll review things like this again. If you would prefer to order ahead and just collect books we’re happy to continue this service for you.

At the moment we’re still only open on Tuesday afternoons 2-5 and Saturday mornings 10-1. We’ll be opening for more sessions, probably starting some time in September; keep an eye on our Facebook page, and the noticeboards in the village, for information on this. We’re sure our many volunteers will come back to help us once again as we add in more sessions.

Come and have a look and say hello

A lot of the people who have been using us since we re-opened for ‘order and collect’ back in July 2020 have been new library users; it’s been lovely to meet new people and make new friends. We hope they’ll stay with us and that they’ll be joined by the people who used to visit before the pandemic but who maybe didn’t feel able to mix much when things were bad.

The library looks really lovely. We’ve done quite a bit of work improving things during this strange time we’ve experienced, and we’ve added a lot of new books to our stock. Please come and have a look!
