Chester Library at Storyhouse

Storyhouse in Chester is now open with its usual opening hours. Items can be returned and borrowed via our self-service machines. You will also be able to pre-book a computer for essential tasks and urgent printing as well as use the photocopier (self-service). Borrowing items and using the computers will also be self-service, so remember to bring your library card.

All loans have been extended until 2 November. Any items borrowed directly from a Cheshire East Library are now issued for the normal three week loan period. You can check the return date on your items by logging in to your account.

To support a safe and managed opening, we will have some new measures in place:

  • limited numbers of people will be allowed in each building
  • families will be welcome, but to ensure spaces can be managed safely, all children under 12 must be accompanied by a responsible adult
  • some services will be unavailable to begin with including reference stock, newspapers, local studies materials, seating, toilets, meeting rooms and customer services
  • regular events and activities have been suspended and replaced with online alternatives where possible
  • there will be provision of hand sanitiser, one-way systems and floor markings to maintain social distancing
  • we’ll also be following Government Test and Trace guidelines
  • face coverings must be worn when visiting the library
