LIBRARYPLUS PROVES TO BE A SUCCESS

 

This month, our libraries started working in a whole new way with the start of self-service hours through LibraryPlus at Bedford Central, Bromham and Wootton Libraries.  By the end of the first week of the new service, 1,549 people have signed-up for LibraryPlus, of those, 132 are new library members!

 

Once signed-up, people are 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.

 

Cllr Sarah Holland, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture said: “LibraryPlus has been a great success. Where other authorities are closing libraries we have manged to increase opening hours and open Sunday in the Town Centre.”

 

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 have seen library opening hours increase by over 40 hours overall, including Bedford Central Library opening on Sundays.

 

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 at this point in time. As a result, it was agreed that there will be a small reduction in opening hours instead, to make the necessary savings.
