Announcement: Tameside’s libraries welcome back customers

Thanks to a further relaxation in coronavirus restrictions, the eight libraries across the borough are now open for browsing on Monday, some libraries have private study. To make sure there is a safe distance between customers who are studying and those who are browsing, study space will only be available at Ashton, Droylsden, Dukinfield, Hattersley and Stalybridge. Anyone wishing to use study space must book in advance. PCs are available in one-hour slots while allocated study space can be used for two hours. Separate appointments are needed. In addition to private study and browsing, library customers can borrow books and consult reference resources.
Customers can use libraries confident that all necessary covid safety measures will be in place such as hand sanitiser, social distancing, Perspex screens and a requirement for everyone to wear a face covering unless exempt. Numbers entering each site will be strictly managed and PCs and study spaces will be cleaned between users. For anyone unable to visit a library, or who chooses not to do so, the full range of digital services remains in place including e-books, e-audio books, digital magazines and newspapers, and other online resources. Customers can manage their library account online, including renewing any items, managing reservations, and changing personal details. There is also a telephone enquiry service and renewals can be made over the phone.
