Sandiway Library to remain closed for the present


From 12 April, Northwich and Winsford libraries will reopen on reduced hours for browsing and public computer access. An Order and Collect service will also be available from both Libraries. It would appear that Sandiway Library will remain closed for the present.

The Council’s Head of Communities, Culture and Libraries, Rachel Foster said: “Staff will be working hard to ensure everyone’s safety. Our ... libraries have tested processes in place to ensure that all spaces are cleaned on a regular basis and visitors adhere to social distancing guidelines. “We look forward to welcoming visitors back. Look out in the press and ... online in the coming months with West Cheshire Libraries.”

Some Library services are available 24/7 online, including the new BorrowBox service. Any library member can download the new BorrowBox app to their digital devices and access thousands of eBooks and eAudiobooks free of charge at any time of the day or night.

Reservations will resume on 12 April and loan periods will be extended until 17 May. Libraries are also fine-free for under 13s now. Children aged 0 to 12 years will no longer be charged for any overdue items and any pre-existing late charges will be removed from their accounts. Check items on loan by logging in to your account.
