All Around Tarvin
By Tarvin Community Centre - 11th October 2020 6:00am
The Community Centre Committee is delighted to announce that CW&C have decided to resume the Library service to the village from Thursday October 15th between 2.00pm and 4.00pm. However, this service will be provided by a mobile library parked in the Community Centre CAR PARK and it will be WEEKLY on a Thursday rather than twice a week.
Opening small libraries has posed problems for the Library Service as they have worked hard to provide safe access to books in a way that protects both library users and library staff. While larger libraries have opened, several smaller sites have proved more complicated. The mobile service will be in place until conditions change.
Individuals or individual households will be able to enter the library singly, mask must be worn, hands sanitised, and contact details given to facilitate Track and Trace.
Vice Chair Sue Hardacre said "We are delighted that the Council can finally offer a Covid compliant library service. During lockdown access to books has been a great comfort to many residents enabling them to be transported away from the realities of life. The library in the Edna Rose Room has always been well attended and I expect that there will be quite a queue on Thursday."
