Adeje Library will reopen its doors on 18th May 2020

The service will operate by prior appointment, open from 9am to 2pm 

The Adeje department of education, under Councillor Maria Clavijo Maza, has announced that the public library, based in the Adeje Cultural Centre, will reopen its doors on May 18th with a progressive opening taking place, prior appointments required, from 9am to 2pm.  During this week (May 11 – 15) the library staff has been busy behind closed doors reorganising the spaces in the centre, putting the new operating and technical measures in place to be ready to open to the public.



The reopening will happen in phases, and from May 18  – 22 the library will be open during the above-mentioned hours solely for returns of items that were lent out prior to the quarantine announcement.  Returns will be made at the usual counter.


From May 25th during the opening hours of 9am – 2pm the library will begin to loan books by prior appointment.  Books can be taken for up to 30 days as can all other materials in the library normally lent out (CDs, DVDs, etc).  However users cannot browse the shelves of the library nor walk freely around.  The reading section and the study areas remain closed as do the computers normally available for public use.


The library also recommends users check out the online free resources available through the Canarian library network:  




The councillor for tourism, Adolfo Alonso Ferrera noted that from May 14th the Playa Fañabe has been open for uses as outlined by the central government.  The decision was taken following a technical evaluation of the state of the beach and water, and the co-ordination with the company who are in charge of services and beach cleaning.


The public are reminded that during Phase 1 the beach can be used only for individual sports and walking on the sand during the hours already established for different age/family groups. During Phase 1 the beach CANNOT be used for picnics, play, recreational swims or sunbathing.  


La Caleta is also open for professional/federated athletes under certain conditions:  

  • That they are complying with the hours as established by central government
  • They are only practising sport/training
  • They should be in possession of an accreditation if they belong to a federation
  • Follow the rules of the federation/safety procedures
  • Follow the rules as laid down by the maritime safety authorities
  • Follow the Covid-19 health and safety measures.


In parallel the council continues to evaluate and assess the possibility of opening more beaches in the coming days.
