Solihull libraries ‘click and collect’ begins on Monday

Editorial Correspondent 3rd Jul, 2020 Updated: 3rd Jul, 2020

SOLIHULL residents can order library books online again and collect them from Monday.

It comes after the council said last week it was considering re-opening libraries, as we reported.

Council leader Ian Courts said: “I’ve mentioned before that we wanted you to return your library books and now you can start ordering new ones.  From Monday 6 July, staff from Solihull Library Service will start issuing books through a new ‘Click and Collect’ scheme at The Core.

“Forms are available online for people to select books that they can then collect from Monday onwards.

“A similar scheme will be available at Chelmsley Wood Library and Shirley Library from 20 July onwards. You can select books to collect from these libraries from Monday 13 July.

“The service will be available in 30 minutes slots with users submitting requests for books via an online booking system on the Library Service web pages.

“Anyone who can’t use the online form can place an order by phoning 0121 704 8001. The Home Library Service will also restart on 6 July.”
