As with all libraries in Staffordshire we are following the phased opening procedures determined by the Staffordshire County Council.
The first phase, which will last for at least 3 weeks, limits the services available for library users to: return of books, issuing of pre-ordered books and supplying books to the house bound.
To order books telephone 0300 111 8000 or complete the online order form at https://www.staffordshire.gov.uk/Libraries/libraries.aspx or complete a form in the library. Would you please bring your own pen for this? In each case you will require your library number. You will be notified by email or phone when your requests are available.
When entering the library would you please wear a face mask/covering.
Returned books will be put into quarantine for 3 clear days before being available for reissuing.
The use of the public computers, browsing the bookshelves, the use of the meeting room and toilet will not be available until a later phase in the reopening procedures.
The lift in the library will be undergoing an essential upgrade which, hopefully, will be completed by 15th September. This will mean that the entrance from the High Street to the library will be out of bounds to visitors and volunteer staff during this period. Entrance to the library will be by the rear door. As visitors will be walking and possibly queuing on the driveway the car park will be closed during this period.
Thank you for your patience. We hope to see you in the library soon.
