Book Bundles is a service we’re going to be offering from Tuesday 21st July as part of our transition back to full library operation.
Book bundles are collections of books of a similar genre or topic that you’ll be able to pre-order for collection from the library. Each bundle comprises four books for adults and three books for juniors. Adult readers may select one bundle at a time – either fiction or non-fiction. Juniors may choose two bundles of the same type or two different ones.
Good news! We’ve been busy planning a staged re-opening of the library:
From 21st July we will offer a limited service, opening from 10am till 12 Noon on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays for returning books and collecting pre-ordered book bundles (see below).
Week commencing 27th July: you’ll be able to use the public computers.
Week commencing 3rd August: we hope to welcome you back into the building for limited book browsing.
Special Covid-19 precautions will be in place, including social distancing and books being quarantined for 72 hours after handling.
Home Library & Information Service (HLIS)
Our home library service will be running again from 16th July offering existing HLIS customers monthly deliveries. If you’re unable to get to the library for any reason and would like to join the service you’ll find details here.
There is no need to rush to return books to the library – we will want to avoid being overwhelmed in our first few days. All loans have automatically been extended to 1st September so no fines are accruing.
NEW BOOK BUNDLE SERVICE
You’ll be able to order Book bundles for all ages by telephone, email, online order or a form available from the library. We’ll be posting full details of this service on our website very soon.
Library events and social groups
We are sorry, but for the moment there will be no events or group sessions.
We are doing all we can to resume normal service but it will take time. Please keep checking here and our Facebook page for more updates.
