For the first time since lockdown began services will soon be available to customers at the Rushmere pop-up library.
Visitors will be able to browse the shelves for books and use the Suffolk Libraries Local computers from Wednesday, May 19, after Boris Johnson confirmed the further easing of lockdown from Monday.
Computers will be available to be booked and can be used from 9.30am to 1.30pm every Wednesday at the pop-up library, which is based at Ransomes Sports Pavilion in Sidegate Avenue.
Before lockdown, Rushmere delivered many children's events and activities, which often included manager Tom Veasey performing songs on his guitar.
From Wednesday, June 23, Suffolk Libraries will once again be offering wordplay activities for pre-school children and weekly coffee mornings and activities for adults.
A parent of one child who visited the library before the lockdown, said: "It has improved my child’s confidence in joining in with singing and continued his interest in books and reading, he also enjoys the creative activities available.
