Library Headquarters Store

Due to the relocation of the HQ store, there will be some disruption to stock supply for reservations placed from Monday 18th December until Friday 2nd February 2018. 

There may be significant delays in supplying stock reserved – if you have an urgent request please ask staff to check whether it can be satisfied before placing the request.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Trouble shooting

If you have tried to order an item via the 'reserve' option in the catalogue, you may see the message: 'request failed'. In most cases this will be because your library membership has temporarily expired, and you need to contact us or visit your local library to confirm your details as library accounts automatically expire every three years.
