Marià Villangómez library welcomes islanders back for on-site visits without appointment, but reduced capacity

foto 2020 bibliotecaThe Formentera department of culture reports that when Biblioteca Marià Villangómez opens on 1 July, visitors will be able to stay for on-site visits without an appointment, though capacity limitations will be in effect. Library hours are 10.30am to 1.00pm (Monday to Friday) and 5.00pm to 7.30pm (Monday to Thursday).

Appointments, available by sending an email to biblioteca@conselldeformentera.cat or calling 971 32 33 86 during normal hours, are recommended for visitors who intend to check out materials. Queries about library holdings and the catalogue can be handled at http://caiblib.uib.es, or at the front desk of the library.

Islanders who wish to use the printing and photocopy service should also schedule an appointment to do so. Such individuals should send a copy of the document they wish to print by email to reprografia@conselldeformentera.cat, specifying the number of copies desired and whether printing should be done in black and white or colour.

The returns box will remain operational during normal library hours. All returned material will be held in quarantine for 24 hours.

The library will be equipped with 12 stations where visitors can read, study or use a personal computer during 20-minute sessions. Any document consulted will subsequently be kept in 24-hour quarantine.

In the afternoon, the library’s computer lab will also have six computers available for sessions of 20 minutes. Visitors who want to use a station at the computer lab are encouraged to send an email to reprografia@conselldeformentera.cat first to schedule an appointment.

Visitors to the library are asked to keep a 1.5-metre distance from each other and library personnel. The use of hand sanitiser is required, as are masks for everyone over six.

The children’s room will remain closed to the public and library visitors must be accompanied by library staff in order to access books there. Donations are not being accepted, and children’s books may not be lent out. The Sant Ferran library connection remains closed.
