Place your reservations on our catalogue or app, and once you receive a notice saying your reservations are ready, please call the library during Click and Collect hours to arrange collection. You can also arrange collection for any existing reservations that you might have available. When you come to collect your items, please wear a mask and check in using the QR code. A reminder that due to lockdown restrictions, you may only come to the library to collect your items if you live within 15km of the library branch.

If you need to renew any items, you can do so on the app, online catalogue, or by calling the library.
