How to reserve items

You can reserve any item we have in stock that is available for loan. You need to be a member of the library to do this. If you do not have a library card please visit our page about how to join the library.

To reserve items:

  • go to our online library catalogue
  • search for the item
  • click on 'Reserve this item' 
  • log in with your library membership card number and enter your PIN
  • select the library where you want to pick up your item 
  • confirm your request

Alternatively, you can come into one of our libraries and request the item at the counter.
