The Word: Covid-19 Update
After careful consideration, South Tyneside Council have taken the decision to close South Tyneside leisure centres and libraries, including The Word, from Thursday 19 March until further notice.
Following this decision, and the Government’s recent advice for those who are within the at-risk categories to limit non-essential contact for social distancing measures, we will be cancelling all programmed events up to and including 14 June. Our staff have worked hard to contact all those who have booked onto one of our events to issue refunds. We have successfully contacted over 90% of people. All other refunds will be processed once we reopen.
Library borrowers are advised to keep hold of books until the libraries re-open. No fines will be charged. Library users can still access online library services and the Home Readers Library Service will continue to operate as normal.
The Word will reopen when it is deemed safe to do so.
