Library Staffing – updated 10th August 2017

The library is open every day as usual over the summer period but there may be occasions when the library is not staffed for a day or half a day. If you are planning to visit the library and you need to see a member of staff when you come, you are strongly advised to contact us in advance.

Once again, we are employing some casual summer staff to carry out stocktaking and general housekeeping jobs to ensure that the library collection is maintained, and the casual staff will be working in the library during July and August. Wendy Bell, Aimee May and Nathan May are currently working in the library; please say hello to them and bear in mind that they may also be able to help you with any basic enquiries that you may have in Rachel’s absence

Rachel is taking annual leave and the library will not be staffed on Friday August 18th. Rachel is on leave from Thursday August 17th – Tuesday August 22nd and the library will be staffed by Aimee, Nathan and Wendy in Rachel’s absence, apart from Friday August 18th when the library will not be staffed.

Our new Learning Resources Assistant should be in post by mid September at the latest.

Please be aware that until the new Learning Resources Assistant is in post, there may be a slight delay in responding to enquiries.

Please contact Rachel if you have any queries about this.

The library is not staffed on a Friday afternoon between 1.30pm and 3.30pm due to other staff commitments.
Occasionally, the library may be unstaffed for the whole of Friday afternoon.
Please bear this in mind if you plan to visit the library on a Friday, and contact us in advance if you have any questions.
