VERWOOD Library has reopened its doors once again.

The opening of the library by Dorset Council, along with others in Shaftesbury and Swanage follows the successful reopening of nine libraries, in Blandford, Bridport, Dorchester, Ferndown, Gillingham, Sherborne, Wareham, Weymouth and Wimborne.

Customers will be able to browse the shelves and use the public computers.

The computers will be available for a 45-minute session and should be pre-booked by calling in advance.

Verwood library will be open from 9.30am to 1pm, Monday to Saturday but will be closed on Wednesdays. To book computers call 01202 822972.

Opening times are being limited to mornings so staff can work safely in the afternoons to pick and pack bags for the order and collect service – an alternative service for existing customers who are unable to spend time in the library.
