Open Plus has landed at Cadishead Library!

12th February 2019

Thank you for your patience during the recent temporary closure of Cadishead Library for building works and to install Open Plus.

You may remember that Open Plus is specialised technology that allows you to access our services independently, via a process of self service, when staff are not present. So customers will be able to take and return books, use computers and meet and relax in the library.

Following the re-opening of the library on Monday 4 February we are now pleased to confirm that Open Plus will be available from Monday 11 February, when opening times will increase from 39 to 57 hours per week. Until 15 April staff will be at the library during the current opening hours to explain how Open Plus works and to go through the simple induction procedure.

From 15 April staff will be available at the library for 25 hours per week.

These are the two sets of opening hours, from 11 February to 13 April, and from 15 April onwards. We have taken into account the views shared by customers in the consultation we completed last year:
