We hope you are all keeping well and safe, and looking forward to a new normal life!  We re-opened the library for the exchange of books 2 weeks ago and I am pleased to say our system has worked well.   At a meeting of Conseil this week we decided to begin to reopen the cafe.

The La Souterraine English Library for the time being is open on Wednsday and Friday mornings from 10h00 to 13h00.  The Cafe will re-open at the same time only on Wednesday  15th July,  We a will re=assess progress and consider further opening the cafe at our next meeting of Conseil.

Please bear with us as in order to maintian social distancing we have reduced the number of tables and seats. Please wear a mask until you are seated at a table and put it back on if you leave the table.

We will be doing our very best to keep you and our volunteers safe, so please keep to our health and social distancing rules:

  • All visitors must wear a mask
  • Hand sanitizer must be used on entry, and will be available inside the door.
  • The number of people in the Library will be limited. We will leave the door open at the top of the stairs,  If the library and cafe are full, then you will be asked to wait downstairs.
  • If you have to wait, please use the downstairs area (not the stairs) or outside if the weather permits, and please maintian distancing.

Looking forward to seeing you all again
