My mother works at a library and still has to go in despite most other non-essential workers being advised to stay at home. She is putting herself and her family at risk by going to work at a library everyday.

My wife is a university library worker - why should she risk her health and the health and lives of her family, some of whom are particularly vulnerable, when other university staff are working safely from home?!

I am an epidemiologist and know how critical it is to protect library staff and patrons from becoming infected and transmitting disease to others.

Everyone should stay away from public spaces and staying open encourages the opposite. There is plenty of resources on line and staff can, and should be allowed to, work from home.

This is an unnecessary risk. Leeds University have shut their libraries o it can be done.

Libraries are valuable resources and we need to keep librarians safe for the good of them, their families and borrowers/users. I have 6 novels borrowed from the library (stockpiled) to help get me through this.
