Marshalswick Library has reopened!

Published: 28 August 2020

Visitors will be able enter the library for up to 15 minutes to browse the bookshelves and to use the self-service kiosks for borrowing items. Social distancing measures will be in place including queue management, a screen on our enquiry desk, a hand sanitiser station and quarantine areas for returned books. Customers will also be expected to wear face coverings during their visit.

In addition, the People’s Network computers will be available in one-hour slots for customers who have made a booking in advance. There will be 15 minutes between bookings to allow for cleaning.’ (Marshalswick will have one PC available for now, it has a scanner and an accessible screen and printing access.)

The library service as a whole will carry on offering our expanded library resources online, including e-books, e-audio books, digital newspapers and magazines, online courses and the Online Reference Library. And the team at Marshalswick will carry on creating and sharing online events such as Baby Rhyme Times, St Albans Stories and LEGO challenges.

You can find the latest information about Hertfordshire libraries re-opening plans and our online services on the Hertfordshire website, should you want to know more.

Best wishes, Richard Marpole
