Libraries Re-opening Information

From Monday 6 July, you will be able to reserve books online on this platform (the library catalogue), on the Library App (App Store or Google Play) or by telephone*, and collect them from the door of your library or mobile once available. As at 1pm on Friday 10th July, we are having problems with our telephone system at libraries and the telephone reservations are temporarily unavailable. 

We are currently unable to notify via email or text when items are ready to collect, but your online account will show when items are available, so we recommend logging in to check the status of your order.

Browsing is not available during this initial phase of reopening. 

Returned items can be placed by customers directly into a special sack and books will be quarantined for 72 hours before being cleaned and reshelved by staff.

Mobile Library customers will be contacted from Monday 6 July by text, email or telephone to discuss the new opening hours and the order and collect service. 

Overdue fines have not been applied during the lockdown period, and are suspended until further notice.

We will keep our website updated, so please check here for the most up to date information and all safety aspects of re-opening.

Description:
At the age of 28, Jessica, who grew up in Canada and lived in London, finds herself in Berlin. Alone. Lonely, with lowered spirits thanks to some family history and a broken heart, she is there, ostensibly, to write a thesis. And though that is what she does daily, what increasingly occupies her is swimming. This book is the story of a beautiful obsession: of the thrill of a still, turquoise lake, of cracking the ice before submerging, of floating under blue skies, of tangled weeds and murkiness, of cool, fresh, spring swimming - of facing past fears of near drowning and of breaking free, learning how landscapes can both haunt and hold us.
