The announcement is in line with government advice on non-essential social contact or travel around the UK in response to dealing with the current COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak. Leader of the Council, Councillor Ian Brookfield said: "These are unprecedented times and they call for unprecedented measures. Our absolute priority has got to be to protect this city and our residents from the harm of Covid-19. "We are closely following the national public health advice whilst working hard to deliver some services differently. We will strive, as far as possible, to limit the impact on our residents - especially the most vulnerable in our communities. "Our library service will be increasing access to eBooks and eAudiobooks and library staff are producing online activity sheets and online story-times to help keep adults and children occupied. We are also exploring mobile library deliveries and online reader groups. "I recognise this is a challenging and worrying time for everyone and I want to reassure residents that we will continue to monitor the situation and take the necessary steps - in line with government guidance - to keep everyone safe in our city."
