Library suspends services after Covid 'incidence'

A County Derry library has suspended all services following what they describe as an 'incidence' of Covid-19 at the premises.

Magherafelt Library, which is situated at The Bridewell Centre in the town, said the move was precautionary.

"As a precautionary measure we have suspended all library services, with immediate effect (from September 21 2020), at Magherafelt Library until further notice. This follows an incidence of Covid-19," they said.

"Thanks to all our customers for your understanding. Further updates on when services will resume will be posted on social media."

Mid Ulster District Council also operate a Tourist Information Centre from the Bridewell building. A spokesperson said the building will remain open following a deep clean, but services in the visitor centre will be delivered remotely until further notice.

"A deep clean of the Bridewell will be undertaken and the building will re-open again to the public on Wednesday (September 23)," they said.

"As we share an access with the library to our visitor information centre, it will also be temporarily closed to ‘walk-in’ customers.

"However, our visitor information staff based in the building will continue to provide a telephone and online service during the period."
