Library announcement

Posted on 7th September, 2020



Library announcement from LibrariesWest:


"We are delighted to let you know that from Monday 7th September you will be able to start reserving items again from the library catalogue, for pick up from most libraries in North Somerset. If your preferred pick-up library is not currently in the drop-down list, we recommend using your nearest available library. Not all libraries across the LibrariesWest consortium are able to offer this service immediately. We have placed a temporary limit of 10 reservations per library member at any one time to help manage demand. This limit will remain in place until further notice. We will start sending out Library Reservation pick-up notices by email and SMS as items become available for collection. Before visiting a library to collect a reserved item we strongly recommend checking the opening hours first as most libraries are operating on revised hours.


Not sure whether you still want to borrow items you have previously requested? Please log on to your library account] and cancel anything that you no longer need to help your library service focus resources on items that customers still wish to borrow.


Other Library Changes


From Monday 7th September we will be removing the temporary 28-day loan period and reinstating the regular loan periods (e.g. 21 days for books, 7 or 14 days for DVDs).


From the same date we will also be reintroducing overdue charges and hire fees.


Returning Items It is important that you are aware when your items are due for return. To avoid overdue charges please check your library account to see when they are due back and renew them if necessary. You can do this at www.librarieswest.org.uk or by using the LibrariesWest app. If you need a PIN reminder, please go to www.librarieswest.org.uk, click on ‘Log in’ and then ‘Forgot my PIN’. Any outstanding charges can be paid online by logging on to your account at www.librarieswest.org.uk and using a debit or credit card. You don’t need to have a PayPal account. Please be aware that any items that were already overdue on March 18th 2020 that you still have on loan will start accruing overdue charges from Monday 17th August. Overdue charges were paused between March 18th and August 16th so you will not be charged for this period.


Keeping you reading online: 1000’s of e books, e audiobooks, and even magazines and comics are available to download for free! Whether you’re looking for the latest issue of BBC Good Food magazine, or a great book to read or listen to just visit www.librarieswest.org.uk for more information. We’re regularly adding to the collections so there should be plenty to choose from!


Spread the word! Tell your friends and family to join LibrariesWest online for free by sharing this link: https://www.librarieswest.org.uk/join - a membership number will be generated to enable access to free e Books, e audio books, e magazines and e comics. Once they are ready to visit a library again, new members who have joined online can call in to a library to upgrade their membership so they can also borrow physical items such as books, DVDs and Talking Books."
