Super Saturday and getting libraries opened

On Saturday and over the weekend, we saw hundreds of Staffordshire businesses open their doors for the first time since March as restrictions were eased. It meant that people were able to have a proper haircut, go to the cinema, and have a socially distanced pint in their local.

It’s been great to see our local businesses opening their doors once again, and I’m pleased to say that the majority of people across Staffordshire enjoyed the lifting of restrictions sensibly.

It’s really important to support our local businesses in the current economic climate, but we must remember that the threat of coronavirus has not gone away, so we need to continue following all the official advice.  This means continuing to social distance, washing hands, and following the government’s Test and Trace advice if called upon to do so.

On Monday, we also saw the start of a rephased opening of our 43 libraries, beginning with Burton, Newcastle and Stafford.  It’s not exactly business as usual yet, but it’s a welcome step in the right direction.

We are asking people to use an ‘order and collect’ service for books to start with and feedback so far is good. To keep people safe; there is no physical browsing or computer access yet, but remember, we still have access to a wealth of e-books, e-magazines and e-audio books available online, so there’s plenty to keep you going.

You can keep up to date with the Library Service via their social media and library web pages.
