Libraries Reopening 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.
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.
Log in to your Your Account using your 10 digit library card number and 4 digit Library PIN. (If you have registered online, your temporary library card number will be UNREG********* and the 4 digit Library PIN you chose).
Search, reserve, renew, manage your library account and much more on the Library Catalogue.
These books, that anyone can reserve and read, are the Armed Forces Covenant book collection which primarily provides support for young people whose friends or family members are serving in the armed forces.
