You can ask for specific authors, titles, genres or subjects or just a random selection. 

Our staff will do their best to try to find books that match your choice from the stock in their library.

Collecting your books

Library staff will contact you with a date and time. Please remember to bring your library card with you, or if you are collecting for someone else, their card.

When you arrive you will be asked to queue outside the library or in the foyer whilst a member of staff brings the books to you in a reusable plastic bag.

If you have books to return they can be left on the trolleys/boxes provided. They will then be quarantined for 72 hours before being returned to the shelves.

You will not be able to enter the main library, browse the shelves, use the computers or photocopier or any other facilities at this present time.


Our reservations service is not currently available as we are unable to move items between libraries. However, if you were informed there was an item to collect before we closed, then please advise the staff when you ring, or add this to the form and they will do their best to include it in your selection.

How to order

Telephone, e-mail, or complete the online form.
