Save time with self issue and return
Did you know that all Knowsley libraries now have automated systems that allow you to check out and return your books without having to go to the library counter? RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) machines work by recognising each individual book and assigning that book to your record without it having to be scanned by our main library management system, and removing it from your account when you return it. These self service machines also allow you to check what is currently on your record, and to renew items you wish to keep – all without having to wait at the library counter for a free member of staff.
Of course, there are also library staff on hand near each RFID machine who are happy to provide guidance and assistance should you require that. So, if you are pushed for time and just want a straight forward transaction, try out our automated self service system in any of our branches.
