Appointments can be booked for two different services, one of which provides help from library staff to chose up to six books to be collected at a pre-arranged time.
Members of the public can also book to browse the collections, however there will be a limit on the number of people in the building to allow social distancing.
The online booking system is set to be ready and live next week to allow people to select their slot.
Whilst other libraries remain closed, customers will be able to visit any of the re-opened libraries, even if it isn’t their most local service.
The opening hours of the libraries will be Monday to Friday, 10am to 1pm.

People who have made an appointment to visit the library will be asked to provide their name and contact details to support the NHS Test and Trace system.
