OpenPlus Access is coming to Priorswood Library in the Autumn

OpenPlus Access allows registered library members (who have had an induction session) to access the library outside of staffed opening hours. Library members including book groups, studying students and families will be able to visit their library when it suits them, including weekends and evenings.

The library will be closed from 16th September to Tuesday 2nd October while the system is installed and will reopen on Wednesday 3rd October at 9:00am as usual. While Priorswood library is closed library members can use their Somerset Libraries card in any Somerset Library including Taunton and in any Library across the LibrariesWest consortium. Visit www.librarieswest.org.uk for further information.

During October the system will be tested and staff and volunteers will be trained to provide the necessary induction sessions. It is planned to launch the OpenPlus accessed additional hours at the beginning of November with a soft public launch.

The opening hours will then be as follows:
