Ryde Library is still closed at the moment but there is good news coming. The government have said libraries can start opening from 4th July so as long as that advice doesn’t change, and with council approval, we will look to get things going then. Things will be different though with social distancing rules, and because quite a lot of our staff are quite rightly still redeployed to roles helping our most vulnerable residents. We will tell you all our plans as soon as we are able to – watch this space!
In the meantime join us on our facebook pages – Friends of Ryde Library and Isle of Wight Council Library Service.
The due back date for all loans has been extended until 1 August, no fines will be charged during the closed period.
Every year, Isle of Wight Libraries welcome thousands of children into libraries during the summer holidays to take part in the annual Summer Reading Challenge. Unfortunately, the ongoing coronavirus situation means that the traditional challenge can’t happen this year, but all is not lost! This year’s challenge, Silly Squad, has gone digital! Not just that, but it’s started early!
You can join at any time in the summer by going to sillysquad.org.uk and signing up for a great summer of reading.
This week’s activities 15 – 20 June
