Click & Collect Book Bundle

Unable to come into the library to choose your books?

You can now get your books, audio books and magazines with our FREE contactless Click & Collect Book Bundle service.

Either YOU choose, by browsing our online catalogue and selecting the books that you want; or WE choose a selection of books for you.

YOU choose - by using the holds service

You can place a hold on a book:

  • By using our library website
  • By using the Western Bay Libraries mobile app; or
  • By phoning 07 571 8008 or 0800 926 732 and talking to our friendly team.

You will then receive an email or a text message to tell you the books are ready to be picked up.

When you visit the library to collect your items, let the security guard or team member on the door know you are picking up a reserved item. A team member will take your name and bring your reserved books to you - already issued and ready to go!

If you don’t have specific titles in mind, we can choose a selection of titles for you based on your interests.

Our librarians will choose 5-7 books for you based on the information you provide us.
