RESUMPTION OF SPECIFIC BOOK ORDERING AND REVERSION TO 'NORMAL' LENDING PERIODS
The following notice has been issued by Libraries West ( operating the Library network across the SW of England )
We are delighted to let you know that from Monday 14th September you will be able to start reserving items again from the library catalogue, for pick up from libraries in Dorset. 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. The pick-up library will notify you when your reserved item becomes available for collection.
For West Moors: the date is the 14th September.
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.
Other Library Changes
From Monday 14th 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 (where relevant).
