Libraries Extra enables you to enjoy extra access to your community library at times when the library isn’t staffed. All you need is a special Libraries Extra card to get the extra access which a member of staff can provide you with. Just bring some photo ID to get upgraded.
You will be able to visit the library, meet friends and family, get information, browse the stock and read. You can also borrow and return books, CDs and DVDs and make payments through the self-service kiosk , book onto and use a public computer, and print documents. In short, all the services you already use and love. There will be a dedicated phone line which you can contact staff on our Info Hub if you need help. There is also CCTV that is monitored for your safety and security.
At a time when many authorities are cutting back on library services and closing libraries this is an innovative initiative to not only keep libraries open but extend their availability. We hope to see Libraries Extra enable your community library to become a vibrant community hub and welcome community groups to come on board.
