“Please bring your library books back!”

“Please bring your library books back!”


We’re writing to let you know that we will soon be able to issue library books through a new Click and Collect scheme, but we need your help.

In order to give library staff sufficient time to quarantine books and prepare them for safe reissue, please can you return any library books that you have out on loan to any of Solihull’s libraries from 10am to 1pm on Thursday 25 June.

On Monday 6 July staff at Solihull Library Service will start issuing books through a new Click and Collect scheme at The Core. This will be followed by similar schemes at Chelmsley Wood Library and Shirley Library two weeks later on 20 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.

Forms will be available online from Monday 29 June for collections from The Core and from Monday 13 July for Chelmsley Wood and Shirley Libraries. Anyone unable to use the online form can place an order by phoning 0121 704 8001. The Home Library Service will also restart on 6 July.

Please don’t visit our libraries yet other than to drop off your books for safe reissue.

Many thanks,

Solihull Library Service
