But Norfolk County Council has said that Hingham Library will not re-open due to its size.

The council said: “Hingham Library will not re-open because it is too small to observe effective social distancing and has no hand-washing or toilet facilities.

“Instead, there will be a weekly mobile library service from Wednesday, September 30.”

Changes at Reepham Library will include only one person or a bubble of up to five people will be allowed in the library at one time, no PCs will be available and people will be encouraged to use the ‘Grab and Go’ service.
