Library reading section reopens

Adeje 19 June 2020

 

Adeje library opens the reading room; users will need to book in advance

 

Capacity will be limited to 7 people and there will be two sessions, 8am to 11am and 11am to 2pm

 

The Adeje library, part of the department of Education under Councillor María Clavijo Maza, will reopen the reading room from next Monday June 22nd. To make this possible the library will be operating with two sessions, from 8am to 11am and 11am to 2pm. Capacity will be limited to 7 people at any one time, all users will be required to wear a mask at all times, and the area will be cleaned and disinfected after each session. 

 

The Adeje public library opened to the public again on May 18th, in a phased manner, controlled and operating via prior appointments for people who wished to return books. Before opening the library had made the necessary changes to the centre, part of the on-going process to reintroduce the library services over a phased time.

 

The councillor said that “for now we are opening the reading section downstairs so that we can control capacity at all times, guaranteeing the safety of library visitors and, of course, the staff”. She underlined that “we are working on the opening of the library bit by bit, offering the services the library has always made available to the public, but it will take time”.

 

The library continues to prioritise those users who consult the online catalogue https://www3.gobiernodecanarias.org/bibliotecavirtual and reserve the book they want to borrow or consult in situ.  The library staff will be the only ones permitted to get the material from the stacks to bring to the library user in question.

 

Books that are lent will be disinfected upon their return to the library and ‘quarantined’ for 14 days.  There is a zone reserved for returns and the lending time has been increased to 30 days for all kinds of material that can be borrowed.

 

The public is reminded that the newspaper reading section remains closed as are the study sections, the public computers and there are currently no cultural activities taking place here either.

 

We recommend that users also consult online free services offered by the Canarian public libraries network-

 

      Virtual library  absysNET Opac, general catalogue, interesting links, tutorials, etc.

The councillor stated, “to all those who are preparing to renew their membership/courses registration, we remind you that you can use the quota paid for the second half of the previous season towards paying for this year – and if you are not renewing you can ask for your money back – check in the sports office”.

 

People with further questions or who need to confirm their status can phone 922 756200 (Ext 6009 – 6012).

Prevention protocols

To carry out the 2020-2021 registration only one person from a family unit may attend the centre, wearing a mask and gloves, and use their own pen to fill in and sign any form.  You must attend alone.   The entrance to the Las Torres pavilion is now by the parking zone.  Please observe the queuing system, with the recommended separation between you and other members of the public, and the centre’s workers, to ensure everyone’s safety and comfort.

 

It is essential that you disinfect your hands before you enter the centre, and when it is your turn, use the gel that is provided for the public at the door of the centre.  Follow the instructions of the personnel at all times.

 

Once inside the centre and when you have completed the forms, you can, observing your turn, hand in your paperwork.  

 

Exit using the main doors of the centre, thus avoiding any overcrowding.

Adeje Global job platform

Adeje Global job platform

Adeje Global, a new employment platform

The Adeje council’s departments of Employment, and Economic Development, under councillors Manuel Luis Méndez Martín and Raquel Rodríguez Alonso respectively, have launched Adeje Global, a web platform dedicated to cross-connecting Adeje’s unemployed with companies in search of employees.

The new online tool was born out of need to assist the local population in search of work, and will work as a digital aid where they can look for and apply for jobs without having to attend at the CDTCA offices each time there is a vacancy or they need to update their data.  Those who register will be able to upload their personal data, edit it, and update it via the platform, which is operative from today, June 8th.

The platform will also be open to those from outside Adeje, and companies will be able to use Adeje Global to publicise job offers, use it as a platform too for e-learning, etc. Users from Adeje or outside can use Adeje Global to search for work that is relevant to their qualifications.

Those who are looking for work can request access to the online platform by presenting themselves initially at the offices, where they will need to bring all their relevant documentation. Once that is validated and uploaded a page is created for every individual with their information, qualifications, work-experience, etc.

Interested companies, businesses who are seeking staff, can also request admittance to Adeje Global, and upload their work offers, detailing the kind of person they are looking for, criteria for the ideal candidates, etc. The platform managers will work to match individuals with potential work offers using the data that has been supplied. 

Once the offers have been filtered the potential employers, using a supplied password granting them access, can contact the page and profile of prospective candidates that have been identified as potentially suitable for the job in question.

How to access Adeje Global

From June 8th users of ‘Adeje Global’ will be able to ask for access via contact with the employment division, using the empleo@adeje.es and then filling in the form they are sent, following the instructions.  Once accepted, they can access the page through https://empleo.adeje.es, and go to ‘area privada’.  From there you can access your curriculum vitae, personal information, education and experience sections, and languages spoken, and interact directly with the local administration managing the platform.

Public office appointments

Public office appointments

The council continues to urge people to make appointments

 

Appointments can be made online, www.adeje.es or by calling 977.75.62.00

 

Adeje council is continuing to prioritise those who make an appointment online with the public office, and the public are allowed to attend the office in person, abiding by all the public health and safety measures in place, as established by the regional department of health regarding Covid-19.

 

“We have designed an online scheduling system and the public can apply for an appointment, allowing them attend in safety and security, and also helping to guarantee the health and safety of the team in the council’s public office”, said the councillor for the Department of Good Governance, Epifanio Díaz Hernández.

 

The public can request an appointment online through the council’s webpage www.adeje.es or by calling 977.75.62.00. When possible the team in the office will try to resolve your issue online or during your telephone call to avoid the need for you to come to the office, however if there is a need for you to attend in person an appointment will be made.

 

To improve the service and keep any potential infection to a minimum, persons who will be coming to the office must wear a face mask, disinfect their hands using gel provided when they arrive at the door of the office, use the entrance and exit points that are clearly marked, and respect social distance indicated, staying in their zone.

 

 

The council will send anyone who has an appointment an email/online reminder which can be shown, if needed, to justify your attendance at the office, and you must have your identify documentation with you at the same time.
