Join us for an introduction to Libraries Unlocked at Kidderminster Library.

Once launched, library customers who are 15 and over, and local community organisations will be able to use the library outside staffed opening hours if they upgrade to free Libraries Unlocked membership. 

Worcestershire County Council is inviting library members to Kidderminster Library on 22 January 2024 at 10am – 12pm.

The session is an opportunity to find out more about how Libraries Unlocked works and to share your ideas on how the community can make the most of the new service. 

Benefits of Libraries Unlocked include:

•    Use library services at a time that suits you to browse, borrow, and return books at your convenience.
•    Access the free library computers or Wi-Fi for your research or leisure. 
•    Print or photocopy documents hassle-free. 
•    Enjoy dedicated study spaces for focused learning. 
•    Hire meeting rooms for FREE. 
•    Attend engaging community events and more!

Councillor Marcus Hart, Cabinet Member for Communities at Worcestershire County Council, said: I am thrilled that Libraries Unlocked is coming to Kidderminster Library and urge you to drop by and learn how it works, the benefits and how you can make the most of the new service. Libraries Unlocked is a brilliant idea that empowers families, working parents, and the entire community to access the library at their convenience.

Don't take our word for it, hear what our Libraries Unlocked members have to say: 
"Brilliant idea and it's enabled us as a family to access the library more." 
“As a working Mum extended hours has allowed us to pop in at times the library wouldn’t be open normally.” 
“Best thing Worcestershire Libraries have done since the introduction of self service.” 

More information on the libraries that already benefit from Libraries Unlocked can be found on the Library Unlocked webpages.
