The library is reopening on Monday 28th September!

Please come and visit the library – but be prepared for some changes:

  • You need to sanitise your hands at the door, fill in an NHS Test and Trace form, and wear a mask (unless exempt for health reasons)
  • If the library happens to be busy, you might have to wait at the door: visitor numbers are limited to maintain social distancing.
  • All returned books will be put in a box by the door and quarantined for at least 72 hours before being discharged and shelved
  • There is a one-way system, with the exit at the far end of the library, down the steps
  • You are free to browse – but please limit your visit to 30 minutes
  • Please remember to bring your library card
  • There are only 2 computers available – again limited to 30 minutes use
  • All books which were taken out before lockdown have had their due dates extended into October – bring them back ASAP!
  • The dropbox for returns is now open
  • If books were overdue before lockdown you still need to pay fines on them, but the lockdown months will not be counted
  • There have been slight changes to opening hours – check on the website (www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/libraries) or in the library for details

There are no extra activities at the moment: no Storytimes or Rhymetimes, no Reading Group, Scrabble Club or Craft Group, and no Digital Helper sessions. I don’t know when they will be allowed to resume.

But we have plenty of new books, and we can get books in from other libraries for you – and the reservation fee has gone down to £1.15!

So do come in, even if it’s just to say hello and welcome back – Annabel and I will be delighted to see you.

Peppard Revels Film Club – Coronavirus

Due to the current situation, we have made the very sad decision not to hold the Revels Film nights until at least January 2021.  We will review the position again in December 2020 as to whether the film evenings can resume in January 2021.
