What if I can't find the book I want?

If you can't find the book you want, we may be able to get it for you.

We are currently unable to offer the service whilst Wirral libraries are closed. We will update the website when we resume the service.

We will first try to buy the item for our library stock.

Alternatively we can try to get the item from another library service via our inter-library loan service.

In this case you will have to pay the reservation charge plus a fee.
