Some of Norfolk’s libraries will begin to reopen from Monday.

A total of 12 sites will open their doors on 6 and 7 July with the rest to follow in the coming weeks and months.  They have been closed since the start of lockdown.

Changes have been made to allow customers to use the library safely.

This includes asking customers to come in on their own or in pairs and follow a one-way system through every building.

Families can also benefit from a selection of 'Grab & Go' bags for children which will contain pre-selected books that can be checked out as a set.

Computer sessions are also available through a booking system, with each station sanitised after each use.

Seating areas, study spaces and newspapers will not be available when the libraries reopen.

The libraries that are set to reopen next week are:

  • Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library

  • Mile Cross Library

  • King’s Lynn Library

  • Downham Market Library

  • Fakenham Library

  • Acle Library

  • Sprowston Library

  • Great Yarmouth Library

  • Wymondham Library

  • Diss Library

  • Dereham Library

  • Thetford Library
