How Can Portable Partitions Help Public Libraries Open Safely After Lockdown?

How Can Portable Partitions Help Public Libraries Open Safely After Lockdown?

Library scene. How portable partitions can help libraries.

The government’s roadmap for coming out of lockdown states that all non-essential retail will be able to reopen on 12th April and this includes public libraries. As library services are all indoors, safety measures and precautions need to be in place in order to protect the public and staff. Although many libraries have been offering ‘click and collect’ services for books, now that the premise is open once again for the public, libraries will need to be well-prepared.

Measures such as wearing face masks, ensuring hand washing stations are accessible, and maintaining social distancing are all important steps. To make your library safer for the public, Portable Partitions Company provides a wide range of portable partitions and room dividers to help separate enclosed spaces, particularly computer desks.
