3. Receiving your books

Every three weeks a volunteer or member of the library staff will visit you to change your books. You'll be informed of the day of the week and the approximate time we will call.

You can keep any items you haven’t finished and return the rest – staff will renew any outstanding items for you.

Other items you can borrow

We also have a wide range of other items for loan, including:

  • large Print books
  • talking books
  • DVDs

You can borrow as many books as you feel you can read between visits. As a guide we normally supply between 4 and 8 items per delivery.

If there's a specific item you'd like to borrow then let us know by calling 0161 474 5600. You can also speak to the next delivery person or leave a note in your next collection box. We'll do our best to obtain the item for you.

Requests to borrow a particular item are free of charge.
