Request and Read is stopping

The new government guidelines mean that customers can now come in to our libraries to browse and choose their own books.

Therefore, for the moment we are stopping our Request and Read service. 

But you can still order books through our Reservation service

Reservations are free, but customers are limited to two orders at a time. 

For details of how to reserve books, see: Find, Reserve, Renew.

You can check to see which books are in the catalogue for your library, here: Library catalogue.

For more information about the services currently available in our libraries, see changes to the library service.

Returning your items

If you are picking up books, you can return library items at the same time. Please ensure that you queue as appropriate, to ensure social distancing between customers.

If you are only returning items and not collecting new books you can drop off your books into collection boxes in the foyer.

Your books will be quarantined for 72 hours, and then discharged by library staff.

You can also return your library items at any of our other libraries during advertised opening hours.
