COVID 19

We are open!

 

We are delighted to be open again after the Coronavirus restrictions forced closure and grateful to Buckinghamshire Council Library Services in aiding us.

 

We are open for browsing of shelves, borrowing and returning books, and limited access to computer services.

Our opening hours are restricted, but please come to visit us on

 

Tuesdays   10am - 1pm

 

Fridays      10am - 1pm

 

We look forward to welcoming you back!

 

Returning Books

When returning books please place in the plastic boxes at the front door. All books are quarantined before being returned to the shelves.

Keeping Safe

 

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.

WHAT's NEW

New Manager for Haddenham Community Library

Users of the Haddenham Community Library will see a new face in the library as from Tuesday October 20th when Sarah Whitmore takes up her post as library manager. The previous manager resigned whilst the library was in lockdown to take up a position at another library in Buckinghamshire. Sarah whose background is in catering and has worked in community based volunteer staffed projects in Buckinghamshire is passionate about books and the importance of reading. Having recently completed a BA in Creative Writing she is thoroughly looking forward to working in a ‘book environment’. She joins the library at a very critical time as it strives to adapt and reconfigure its services due to the coronavirus restrictions. Sarah enjoys a challenge and working collaboratively with other people. The Library Trustees and volunteers are looking forward to working with her to provide the local community with a library they can be proud of and continue to enjoy despite the very challenging times we are all living through. There are lots of ways the library can do things differently and with Sarah’s appointment this will get underway.

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.
