We look forward to welcoming our borrowers of all ages back in December.
There will be lots of lovely new books waiting for you on our shelves!
And when we are open...
We follow current guidelines for the opening of public spaces and so we restrict numbers inside the library and ask you to use the hand sanitiser at the door before entry. From Tuesday 11th August, in line with government guidance, it will be mandatory for any visitor to library over eleven years of age to wear a face covering unless they have a legitimate reason not to do so. As this is a mandatory requirement, entry may be refused to anyone without a face covering or a valid exemption. The library has a QR code for checking in if you have the NHS Covid-19 App.
When we are open returning books should be placed in the plastic boxes at the front door. All books are quarantined before being returned to the shelves.
When the library is closed, books may be returned to ANY library in Buckinghamshire. Please check the county library website for details of their opening hours.
The Booker Prize 2020
This novel is Douglas Stuart's debut novel. It is set in Glasgow and the author says "Shuggie Bain is a love story looking at that unconditional, often tested love that children can have for flawed parents. I'm sorry if I make it sound like a bleak book, it's actually very funny, it's tender and there's a lot of intimacy and love."
Albert Einstein knew what he was talking about. Here in Haddenham Community Library we couldn’t agree more!
The importance of reading is essential for us all but especially for children. Books fuel the imagination and this is terribly important particularly now.
