In line with the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown, Solihull Libraries will reopen for a ‘Grab and Go’ service on Monday 12 April.

The idea behind the Grab and Go service is that visitors minimise their time at the library by keeping browsing to under 30 minutes and selecting books for borrowing quickly.

In addition, the Libraries Service will offer –

  • up to 45 minutes of essential computer use (no printing)
  • up to 10 items loaned for three weeks
  • children’s activities at some sites – but tickets need to be ordered in advance. These will be advertised through The Core and via social media
  • outside café table service at The Core

The Click and Collect service will continue and customers can return outstanding items on loan to any library site during opening hours. There are currently no fines for overdue books but if members would like reminders about overdue items they need to ensure that their email details are up to date.

Anyone unable to use the online form can place an order by phoning their local library.
