If your library has not reopened, or you cannot visit us
If your library has not reopened, or you cannot visit us for health reasons or due to shielding, and you would like to access eResources, then please follow these steps;
Books due back from 2 November onwards will now be due back on 14 December as a result of the National Lockdown.
If you need to keep an item a little longer, it’s usually possible to renew it. You can renew items up to four times.
To renew items, log in to your online account with your card number and PIN.
If you need any help with renewal, contact Ask Inspire - 01623 677 200 - or your local library.
Most of our services are free of charge. However, there are small charges and fees for some of our services.
Nottinghamshire libraries have been assessed for disabled access. Everyone can use the libraries at ground level, however some libraries are awaiting ramps or other modifications to reach the upper floors. Please ask a member of staff for help if you have difficulty accessing any of the services because of the library layout.
Information on the accessibility of specific libraries can be found in the list of libraries.
If you are unable to
visit your local library we can arrange for books to be brought to you. A
friendly RVS volunteer can bring a selection of books and talking books to you,
in your own home.
For your peace of mind, all of our volunteers have been checked by the Disclosure and Barring Service.
