We want to spend more time helping you. Whether that’s helping you find new authors or teaching you how to build your C.V. the city’s librarians want to be there to help.
To do this, we’re implementing a new kind of self-service. It’s based on RFID technology and allows for faster, bulk checking in and out of library items.
It means that you can be in control – of checking out your own items (all in one go!) and of paying your own fees and charges.
It means that Library staff will always be here to help you. They’ll be more visible in the library itself and will show you how to use the much simpler new machines.
Love your Library Card!
Your library card is a powerful thing. It gives you the ability to explore the pathways of the world right inside your library.
You’re going to need to use it with our new machines so pop in to see us to get it replaced for free if you’ve lost it. You can also use one of the apps mentioned below if you prefer not to carry your library card with you.
Optional cool new tools
RFID self-service also means we can move into the world of apps. You can save your library card in one of these apps and use your phone to scan your card at a new self-service machine.
Two apps that are compatible are ‘Stocard’ and ‘Key Ring’
