Telford Libraries re-opening

Telford & Wrekin Council’s Libraries are set to re-open for the first time since March.  From Saturday, 4 July, in Southwater and from Monday, 6 July in Newport, Wellington and Oakengates.

Madeley Library will be re-opening at a later date, once the whole Anstice building (in which the library is located) re-opens.

Here’s what you can expect on your visit, in the initial re-opening phase:

  • Reduced opening hours
  • You will only be able to return, browse & borrow books
  • The use of public computers, printing, photocopying and all Council First Point services will NOT be available
  • A limited number of people will be allowed to enter at one time – to ensure social distancing
  • Please keep your visit to around 15 min, to ensure everyone has a chance to access the service
  • Follow the directional signage for social distancing
  • Use the hand sanitiser unit at the entrance to each library
