Step 3. Arranging a pick-up time

  • Once the items are ready, a member of staff will call you to arrange a date and time for you to safely uplift your books.

Step 4. Collecting your books

  • A member of staff will meet you with your books at the entrance of your chosen library at the arranged date and time.

Returning borrowed Items

To manage safe physical distancing, we encourage users to arrange a time slot to return their items - you can also take advantage of this opportunity to borrow something new at the same time. There’s also no need to worry about fines or charges as they are currently suspended so you may wish to hang on to your books until your local library starts delivering the Book to Borrow service.

Dog or food waste bags

Dog or food waste bags can be collected by calling one of our open libraries to check that they have some in stock and also arrange a time when you can uplift them.
