New Opening Hours for January


                   Saturdays Only

                10:00 am - 2:00 pm

In light of the new measures announced yesterday evening, the library has decided to reduce its opening hours. For the month of January, we will only be open on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Note: we are closed tomorrow, January 1st, for New Year's Day.

In addition, we have established a maximum capacity of eight members in the library at the same time – this number includes the two volunteers on duty at the desk. Our previous mandatory measures – wearing a mask, sanitizing hands and keeping a safe distance – remain in place.
