“Customers can now quickly and easily borrow, renew and return items thanks to the installation of self-service technology kiosks. This frees up our skilled staff to focus on helping with more complex queries.
“Alongside the arrival of the latest technology, we’ve updated the facilities with fresh decoration and new carpets.
“We’re committed to ensuring our libraries keep pace with the needs of customers, and continue to thrive as popular venues for learning, study and community activities. We’re working hard to transform many library interiors so that the spaces can be used in the most broad and flexible ways, including children’s activities, events and interest groups.”
Lockswood Library reopens today (12 February). Customers can now take advantage of:
• A brighter environment and better layout
• Self-service technology kiosks to quickly and easily borrow and return items
• New mobile shelving so the space can be used flexibly for children’s activities, events and learning
• New furniture
This investment in Lockswood Library forms part of the Library Service’s Strategy to 2020 and a commitment to reinvest £500,000 a year, from the Development Fund, until 2019, into library buildings and technology.
