Brake on browsing as Solihull libraries open for 'Grab and Go'

Solihull Editorial 9th Apr, 2021   0

SOLIHULL Libraries will reopen for a ‘Grab and Go’ service from this Monday, April 12.

The idea is that visitors minimise their time at the library by keeping browsing to under 30 minutes and selecting books for borrowing quickly.

In addition, the libraries will offer:

Up to 45 minutes of essential computer use (no printing)

Up to 10 items loaned for three weeks

Children’s activities at some sites – but tickets need to be ordered in advance.

Outside café table service at The Core

The Click and Collect service will continue and customers will be able to return outstanding items on loan to any library during opening hours.

There are currently no fines for overdue books but people can ask for reminders via email.
