Browse & Borrow
Browse & Borrow - use this service if you need to browse the shelves before borrowing an item. Book a time slot to browse open shelf collections at the libraries taking part in this service. Time slots for desk space in a library need to be booked separately.
Ordering printed material
Closed Stack material can be requested to reading rooms - use this service if the item you want is not on open shelves.
Return of loans
Readers should return items to the library from which they were borrowed. If this is not possible items can also be returned to temporary loan return hubs. If you are unable to visit a library, you can send books to us using the Royal Mail Tracked service.
Fines for overdue books are currently suspended, we will inform readers when they are reinstated.
