Book To Borrow Process

Click & Collect and Home Delivery services available.

Step 1. Choosing your books

  • Browse our Catalogue: You can see what is available by browsing our online library catalogue and either
    • Reserve items online, or
    • Note down the books you would like to borrow from your preferred library and use our online order form.
    • If you prefer or if you're not sure what you want our staff will be happy to put together a selection of books for you based on your reading preferences.

Step 2. Ordering your books

There are 2 ways to order your books:

  • Reserve items online: Place holds on any books you would like to borrow when browsing our online library catalogue
  • Order form: You can order books by using our dedicated online order form to request up to a max of 10 books or if you want us to create a selection for you, let us know your reading preferences in the appropriate fields.

Step 3. Getting your books

  • Once the items are ready, a member of staff will call you to arrange a date and time for you to either:
    • Safely collect them from your chosen library.
    • Or have them safely delivered to you. Deliveries will be safely left on your doorstep at the arranged time.

Returning borrowed Items

To manage safe physical distancing, we encourage users to either use our online form or contact your local library to arrange a date and time to safely return items. You could take advantage of this opportunity to borrow something new at the same time.

There’s also no need to worry about fines or charges 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.
