Two more Wirral libraries to reopen this week

Offering access to books and IT facilities, Higher Bebington and Upton libraries will be the next sites to reopen.

Upton Library will reopen from Friday 19 November and Higher Bebington will follow on Saturday 20 November. 

Opening hours of the sites will look slightly different. These will be:

  • Higher Bebington – Tuesdays 9am to 1pm and 2pm to 5pm and alternating Saturdays 9am to 1pm
  • Upton – Tuesdays and Fridays 9am to 1pm and 2pm to 5pm and alternating Saturdays 9am to 1pm

Reduced IT facilities are now also available at all open library sites, including Higher Bebington and Upton, for residents to access computers. These are operated on a “drop in” basis and sessions will be limited to one-hour based on availability. 

All visitors are asked to follow the advisory guidance displayed on the COVID-19 safety notices in place at the sites, to help keep themselves, other visitors and staff safe. Those visiting the library are asked to keep a safe distance and consider wearing masks in busy areas.

Screens and hand sanitising stations will still be available on site to help protect visitors and staff and ensure that regular cleaning of hands can be continued. 

The online library can continue to be accessed as usual and residents can join the library for free at any time by visiting the council’s website. 

The borough’s central libraries, Bebington, Birkenhead, Wallasey and West Kirby, along with Bromborough, Eastham, Greasby, Irby, Moreton, Pensby, Rock Ferry, St James and Wallasey Village also remain open.
