Extended Hours
With over 1,000 visits being made during a three month pilot using self access technology since May 2023, we will be continuing to offer extended hours at Wallington Library. Extended hours enables library members to study, work or meet, at times more convenient to them. Entering the library will involve the library member scanning a library barcode at the entrance and entering their PIN to access the library. During extended hours there will not be the presence of regular staff, and CCTV will be recorded at all times to ensure public safety. When the library is moving into the extended hours period, library visitors must vacate the building. Library members will then be able to enter the building 15 minutes after the extended hours period starts. If you have used the library during extended hours and would like to offer feedback, please fill in the feedback form.
