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 are not a member, please join the library.

To reserve items:

  • go to our online library catalogue
  • search for the item
  • select '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 ask at the counter. Please provide your local library with as much information as possible about the book you need.
