Wirral Libraries are now offering an Order and Collect service.

You can order up to 8 paperback, hardback and talking books at a time.

You will need to be a library member to place an order with this service, but you can become a member at any time by signing up here to join the library

How to order

Input your library membership number and details using the form below.

Select the books you would like to order, this can be done one of two ways:

  1. Lucky dip. 3 or 4 books will be chosen at random for you by a member of the library team, or;
  2. ​Tell us your preferences. Fill in details about what books you enjoy (genres, previous titles that you have read or authors you enjoy) and a librarian will choose a selection of books that they think you might enjoy.

Unfortunately we cannot guarantee that we will be able to provide you with specific titles at this time but please include these in your notes on the form and we will do our best to find them for you, or select something else, based on your preferences, that we think you’ll enjoy.

Select when and where is best for you to collect the books from, with a time preference of morning or afternoon.

Order and Collect is currently only available from Birkenhead Central or West Kirby libraries.

Once completed, the system will generate a reference number for you and you'll be contacted by the method you chose, when your books are ready for collection.
