Study space in li­braries open again

- By MYLES BUCHANAN County Wicklow

LI­BRARY study spa­ces re­sumes from Mon­day with all spa­ces phys­i­cally dis­tanced with screens in place.

All Wicklow li­braries are now open for a full brows­ing ser­vice. The mo­bile li­brary has re­sumed too, as well as Saturday open­ings.

You can book a space on­line at www.­brary-ser­vices.

Wicklow County Coun­cil’s County Build­ing is open from 9.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., by ap­point­ment only. Im­prove­ment works are cur­rently tak­ing place which re­quire a sec­tion of the main foyer area to be closed to the public in or­der to com­ply with health and safety re­quire­ments.

A tem­po­rary desk to fa­cil­i­tate mem­bers of the public pre­sent­ing by ap­point­ment for Hous­ing, Plan­ning and En­vi­ron­ment ser­vices will be lo­cated to the rear en­trance.

Mem­bers of the public are re­quested not to present with­out prior ap­point­ment. Where pos­si­ble pay­ments can be made elec­tron­i­cally or by phone, mo­tor taxation can be re­newed on­line or sub­mit­ted by post.

Plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tions can also be sub­mit­ted by post.

The Mu­nic­i­pal District of­fices at Bray, Grey­stones, Ark­low, Wicklow and Balt­in­glass/Bless­ing­ton are also open dur­ing the same times as the County Build­ings, but mem­bers of the public are en­cour­aged not to visit the public of­fices un­nec­es­sar­ily.

When do­ing so, vis­i­tors are re­quested to wear a face cov­er­ing and ad­here to the mea­sures which have been put in place to fa­cil­i­tate phys­i­cal distancing to en­sure the safety of staff and mem­bers of the public.

When mak­ing an ap­point­ment mem­bers of the public will be re­quired to com­plete a brief health and safety ques­tion­naire re­gard­ing COVID 19 in or­der to min­imise the risk of the spread of the virus, this in­for­ma­tion will be re­tained on file for 30 days to fa­cil­i­tate con­tact trac­ing if nec­es­sary but will be de­stroyed there­after.
