Connect & Collect

Through our free Connect and Collect service you can order a selection of books which will be chosen from one of our libraries by a member of staff.

You will be emailed or phoned when your books are ready for collection, and asked to select a time-slot.  Collection of orders is by appointment only.

Placing your Connect and Collect order

Complete the web form on the Forms section of this page to help our staff choose the best selection of books for you! There are separate forms for adult books and books for children and young people. 

If you aren't able to access the internet to complete our Connect and Collect webform, we can take your order over the phone. Current phone days and times can be found here.

In addition to placing orders through our Connect and Collect service, library members now have the option to place holds on specific items using our online catalogue.

You will receive an email to book a collection time when your item is available at your selected library.

Book Returns

The days and times for returning library books can be found here.

All returned items will be quarantined for 72 hours before being checked in and removed from your account - this is for the safety of our staff and customers. Please don’t worry about fines, you will not be fined for books kept on loan during lockdown or book quarantine periods.

Please wear a face covering when in our libraries, and follow our advertised safety guidelines at all times.
