Click and collect

Order items online and collect from your local library.

How it works

Complete the click and collect form. Tell us what sort of books you like to read and choose a library collection point from the list (this service is available at selected libraries only).

Our experienced and knowledgeable library staff will handpick up to six books that fit your interests and preferences. We aim to meet your request within 24 hours. We'll contact you when your collection is available, and you'll have three days to pick them up. 

You may have read the book we choose for you. 

We will aim to select books that you'll enjoy. But even if we do not always hit the mark, it could be fun and exciting. Who knows, you might discover something new!

This service is only available to library customers who have a library card. If you are not a library member, it's easy to apply to join the library. We'll email your library number to you.

Borrowing audiobooks and DVDs

You can order audiobooks and DVDs, but there may be a charge for these items. We'll apply the charges to your library account, and you can:

  • pay at an open library
  • pay charges online.

To pay online, log in to your library account with your library number and PIN. Then select My charges.

Requesting a specific book

Click and collect isn't designed for you to request specific items. Use the online library catalogue or the library app to reserve the items you want. There may be charges for reservations.

When the items are due back

All loans during the lockdown restrictions were due for return or renewal by 10 May. Normal loan periods now apply (3 weeks for books/audiobooks and 1 week for DVDs).  Please check your receipt or library account for the specific due date. 

You can return the items during library opening hours or via the library letterbox (where available).
