Library Update

 How we will provide essential services during this national lockdown… and a whole lot more.

 

All Hampshire public libraries are currently closed for browsing for the remainder of the national lockdown however, I am pleased to confirm that you can still access library services in many other ways:

READY READS: WE SELECT, YOU COLLECT

We Select, You Collect

Our popular Ready Reads ‘click and collect’ service is still available at all Hampshire libraries. When you sign up for Ready Reads, our expert staff will handpick books for safe collection from your chosen library.

 

You can sign up online or by calling 01962 454747.

RESERVATIONS

Reservations image

You can still use our paid-for reservation service during the national lockdown. Use our online library catalogue or the Spydus mobile app to request a book and pick it up from the branch of your choice. This is the ideal service if you want a specific author or title.

HOME LIBRARY SERVICE

Home Library Service

Our Home Library Service will continue to support those who cannot visit a library due to ill-health, disability, or caring duties. If you do not use the Home Library Service but are taking additional precautions during the lockdown, Ready Reads selections and reservations can also be collected on your behalf.
