Select and Collect
You will be able to select (pre-order) books by phone, email or using the library online catalogue and the library staff will have your books ready to collect at a convenient time and date.
Up to five books can be ordered and if the library staff are unable to supply your first choice of titles, they will supply a substitute if you are happy for them to do so. Loans will be for the usual three weeks.
The collection point will be located in the entrance to the library, where a staff member will have your books in a paper bag ready for you to pick-up. Please note you will be required to wear a face covering when entering the library
All the books available to borrow are safe to handle as they will have been quarantined for 72 hours.
You can also return any books using the drop off point at the entrance to Huyton Library, Kirkby Library and Halewood library. Fines or charges have been suspended so don’t worry about them being late.
Select and Collect is also available for children’s books. Under 12s should have their books collected by an adult.
