North Petherton library will reopen to the public on 1st September as part of the Town Council’s plans to carefully move back to normality following the covid lockdown. The need to maintain social distancing will mean that access will be restricted and opening times will be delayed by half an hour, with the library also closing half an hour earlier. The lunchtime opening provided by volunteers from the Friends of the Library will also have to be kept on hold until the risk from the virus reduces further. More details can be found on the Somerset Libraries website.

In line with this initiative, the public toilets in the town, which are provided by the Council in conjunction with the Community Centre Committee, will also reopen on 1st September.
