New ‘Click and Collect service’ starting in all Southend Libraries from Monday 6 July.
We are working on reopening our doors and making our libraries safe for you and our teams.
While this work takes place we are pleased to be able to offer a ‘Click and Collect’ service from all our libraries.
Initially this service will be available from 10am – 2pm Monday to Saturday.
Our team are waiting to select books for you and make them available to collect safely from a library of your choice.
How does ‘Click and Collect work’?
The service is available online or by telephoning your local library.
Tell us what you like to read or if you have favourite authors and our team will choose up to 7 books based on your preferences and also introduce you to authors who may write like your favourite authors.
Do you prefer Large Print or paperback or do you normally borrow from our audio book collection?
Just let our staff know and they will select the books for you and contact you with a pick up date and time for your preferred pick up library.
You will need your:
- Library card number
Our normal reservations service will be available again from Thursday 2 July.
(Unfortunately reservations from out SELMS partners are not possible at the moment but we hope to resume this service as soon as it is safe to do so).
If you only want a particular item that is available in our local libraries then please use the normal online reservation service or call your local library and they will reserve it for you and contact you with a pick up date and time when it is ready to collect.
