Kate Leonard, Libraries Development Manager, shared her excitement on behalf of Aura Leisure and Libraries saying: “From Monday 29th March the community will be able to visit our libraries, browse our collections and can talk to our team about booking a computer slot at their local library. We are delighted to be able to welcome back our library members and can’t wait to see everyone again.”
We will also continue to provide our Select and Collect service to our customers. Aura Library members can ‘Select and Collect’ books online, by telephone (01352 703750) or by email (email@example.com). You can browse our catalogue here and place a hold on items to collect from the library counter. We will just need to know your library membership number, a contact telephone number and email address, your book requests/preferences, and your preferred collection point.
Loans will be for the usual three week period, however we will automatically renew items if they are not returned after three weeks: we would like to reassure library users that no fines will be placed. We do however encourage you to return these items as soon as you can so that they may be re-issued to another borrower.
We would like to reassure the community that we are following Public Health Wales guidance on reducing the risk of cross contamination by placing all books in a 72 hour quarantine on return and prior to distribution. When visiting the library please be aware that COVID secure measures apply. Library visitors must adhere to social distancing measures, wear a face covering and make use of the hand sanitization facilities. To keep you and our colleagues safe we are limiting the number of people in the building at any one time and will require you to provide contact details for the Track and Trace system.

Our home delivery service will continue to visit customers as normal and the Aura Mobile Library will also start to resume its schedule and visit routes around the county once again.
