Reopening

A limited drop-off and library book takeaway service will be available at our libraries from Monday, July 6, after the Government confirmed that libraries could once again re-open following closure in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

We are offering two ways for customers to collect a selection of pre-ordered books:

  • Library Takeaway – tell us the genres you like and we will put together a bundle for you!
  • Reserve and collect – browse our catalogue online and reserve, or ring and reserve.

To use our Library Takeaway service, just go to our online form or give us a call.  We will contact you to arrange a collection slot when your takeaway selection is ready – please wait until we contact you before coming to pick up your order.

You can reserve items by browsing the online catalogue and selecting Reserve once you have logged into your account.  Customers reserving books are asked to be patient as the service may be a little slower than usual, however loan times have been doubled to six weeks and there will be no charge for reservations.  We will contact you when your book is available at the library you have selected – please wait until a collection slot has been arranged with you before coming to pick up items.
