  1. reserve and collect book ordering and pick-up service
  2. pre-bookable public computer sessions for essential purposes
  3. book returns

Subject to volunteer availability, Library Service at Home book deliveries will be available for customers who are unable to visit their local library.

Customers wishing to reserve books or book a computer session can do so via their account or call the Contact Centre on 01905 822722.

All return dates have been extended to 31 December 2020 and library fines will be suspended until that date. There will be no reservation charges while the Reserve and Collect service is in operation.  

Previously announced plans for the re-introduction of ‘Storybubble’ sessions in libraries and meeting room hire have been put on hold until the country moves out of lockdown. The Mobile service will also be on hold during the lockdown period.

Social distancing and hygiene measures are in place for everyone’s safety. To comply with government guidance, library visitors need to wear a face covering and register contact details with library staff on entry.
