Libraries

Due to the continued decrease in Covid-19 cases in Rhondda Cynon Taf and in line with Welsh Government guidance RCT Libraries will be implementing Phase 2 and Phase 3 of our recovery plan. These phases are outlined below.

All libraries are now open to the public to allow browsing with the following extra precautions being put into place.

  • Order and Collect service.
  • A maximum number of borrowers in the library at any one time. The maximum number of borrowers allowed into a library will vary from site to site and this number will be set prior to re-opening.
  • All borrowers must wear a face mask (unless medical reasons prevent this) and sanitise their hands upon entering the building.
  • Time within the library limited to 30 minutes and borrowers encouraged to use self-service kiosks where available.
  • Procedures put in place for staff monitoring of social distancing.
  • Perspex screens at points where face to face contact may occur.
  • Seating/furniture to be removed
  • Library shelving rearranged where possible to encourage social distancing and create one-way systems. If possible different entry and exit points to be used.
  • Limited use of community meeting rooms will also be allowed.
  • Use of the Reference areas to be allowed by appointment. One-hour sessions to be available and use limited to 2 persons. Any local history materials used to be quarantined for 72 hours.

Opening hours as follows:

Monday – 9am to 6pm
Tuesday – 9am to 7pm
Wednesday – 9am to 6pm
Thursday – 9am to 6pm
Friday – 9am to 5pm
