All 23 Dorset Council libraries will be open from Wednesday 2 December.
All the opening times can be found at www.dorsetcouncil.gov.uk/libraries and customers are advised to check the times for their local library before setting off.
Although not back to their full pre-COVID opening hours, nine locations will also be open some afternoons. These are: Dorchester, Ferndown, Weymouth, Gillingham, Blandford, Bridport, Sherborne, Wimborne and Wareham.
Customers will be able to browse books and use the library computers (bookable slots). The order and collect service will still be available as an alternative to visiting, and an exciting programme of activities will continue to be offered online.
Councillor Jill Haynes, Portfolio Holder for Customer and Community Services, said: “As this second lockdown draws to a close, we can’t wait to welcome back customers. We’ll continue to have measures in place so everyone can visit safely while they enjoy their library or information centre.
“I’d like to thank customers for their patience, and our employees for their creativity and passion which continues to make life a little more pleasurable for everyone during these difficult times.”
The council’s three tourist information centres will also be resuming their face-to-face service on 2 December, at Dorchester, Sherborne and Wareham. As well as popping in for advice about the local area, people will be able to complete the TIC consultation which has been extended until 3 January. Please check opening times before visiting your TIC.
