Face coverings and track and trace requirements

The Government has extended the policy on the mandatory wearing of face coverings in public places in England to include public libraries. They are to be worn by all visitors, except for those who have an age, health or disability reason for not wearing a face covering.

It is also mandatory for library staff to ask customers to leave their details when entering library buildings for computer use and booked browsing. Customers who have downloaded the NHS Test and Trace app can scan the QR code provided on posters that are on display near library entrances.

​Get involved!

There's more to the library than you think. Lots of our services for the community rely on support from our volunteers. What could you do?

How do you become a volunteer?

Search the Get Involved Hub for all current library volunteering vacancies.

You can apply online to register your interest in an opportunity. There is an interview process and all successful volunteers will be asked to supply details of referees. Volunteers for some roles are subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.

We will provide any training that is necessary to assist in volunteering roles.

​Answers Plus

Answers Plus is the Libraries and Information Service's online information service. We welcome questions from anyone who lives, works or studies in Northamptonshire, or who would like information about the county.
