Changes to using the library
When visiting the library, you will be asked to give your name and a contact number. All libraries have been asked by Government to collect the following information, to assist with the control of the Covid-19 pandemic. This information will be shared with NHS Test and Trace where requested, to identify people who may have been exposed to the virus.
Residents can have up to 30 minutes to browse for books, or can select and reserve up to six books for collection from their chosen library.
Computers are also available for public use. Due to limited availability, residents wishing to use a computer are encouraged to call their library in advance to book a slot.
Books which were borrowed before libraries were forced to close in March have been renewed until 22 September, so residents will not have incurred fines during this period.
To help ensure social distancing, the numbers of users allowed inside each library at one time will be limited, so it may be necessary to queue outside the library at busy times. Children aged 12 and under must be accompanied by a parent, carer or older sibling.
Library users can reserve books to be picked up, using the online libraries catalogue or using one of the following options:
- Ring and Read – get help to find books which you might enjoy by calling one of the libraries that are opening
- Click and Collect, using www.manchester.gov.uk/libraries
