LibraryPlus

LibraryPlus is Nearly Here!

 

From Monday 4th September, our libraries will be working in a whole new way with the start of self-service hours through LibraryPlus at Bedford Central, Bromham and Wootton Libraries.

 

Our libraries are a fantastic local service where you can meet with family and friends, browse the stock, borrow books, use a PC or access free Wifi, and these changes will see library opening hours increasing by over 40 hours overall, including Bedford Central Library opening on Sundays.

 

Residents can sign-up for LibraryPlus now and there’s already been a lot of interest, with several hundred people signing up in the first week alone! Once signed-up, people will be able to use the libraries through a mixture of staffed and self-service hours, when you can use your library card and a PIN to enter the library.

 

Now that LibraryPlus is nearly here there’s even more reason to get involved. It’s really easy, just pop into one of the LibraryPlus libraries and speak to a member of staff.

 

Cllr Sarah Holland, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture said “I am delighted at the positive response LibraryPlus has had in our libraries so far, with current and new library users signing up to LibraryPlus. I know this is a big change to how our libraries operate, but with the financial pressure the Council is facing this change will allow us to continue to keep every single one of our libraries open while making the necessary savings.”

 

The new opening hours and more information about LibraryPlus are available at www.bedford.gov.uk/LibraryPlus. During the extensive consultation it became clear that Kempston and Putnoe Library users felt that LibraryPlus wasn’t suitable for those branches, so there will be some reduction in opening hours instead, to make the necessary savings.
