COVID-19: Keeping each other safe

Share Bristol Team

As we begin to welcome you into the Library of Things we find ourselves needing to have in place additional measures to keep each others safe, so it’s not the big community gathering we’d perhaps hoped for.

So that we can welcome as many of you as possible into the space safely on our Preview Days, here’s our commitment to you and what we ask of you in return. This will be updated again before we officially open and borrowing begins.

What we’re doing

  • All volunteers will be washing their hands and disinfecting touchpoints within the library regularly
  • All volunteers are expected to wear face coverings in the library unless exempt
  • Limiting visitors to a maximum of two visitors inside the library at any one time, and asking others to wait outside

What we ask you to do

  • Stay away from the library if you, or anyone you have come into contact with, has recently shown symptoms of COVID-19
  • We recommend that you do not come into the library if you are in a high-risk category for COVID-19
  • Wait outside if there are already two visitors inside the library
  • Hands: Sanitise your hands when entering the library
  • Face: Wear a face covering when visiting us, unless exempt
  • Space: Keep at least two metres away from others

Thank you for helping to keep our community safe. If you have any questions please do get in touch with us at
