Important Information


Welcome Back!

From Monday 19 July we want you to visit our libraries with confidence and feel safe. We are therefore keeping some of our safety measures in place. This includes:

  • Asking customers to sanitise their hands
  • Asking staff and customer to wear face coverings, if they can
  • One way systems to remain in place
  • Computer use will resume to 2 hours
  • Track and trace codes and paper alternatives will remain in place we do encourage customers to use this

As part of a major refurbishment in early 2015, Sandal Library was redesigned in consultation with The Alzheimer's Society, becoming the districts first fully dementia friendly library. 

The layout includes subtle design features which are specifically incorporated to make it easier for people living with dementia to use.

The download section on this page has more information on the features we integrated into the design.

We are proud to offer Tovertafel, a magic table stimulating both physical and emotional activity encouraging social interaction that creates moments of happiness for people living with dementia.
