Renew your books
Charges for late returns
Books are automatically being renewed by the library service and you will not be fined until further notice.
Reserve a book
Due to the library closures to tackle COVID-19, you will not be able to reserve a book until further notice.
View our Order and Collect service to order books as a temporary arrangement between our four central libraries in Wirral.
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.
Fees for requesting the purchase of a book
- adults - £1.10
- over 60s - 80p
- under 18s - free
Fees for requesting an inter-library loan
- adults - £3.40 plus £1.10 reservation charge = £4.50 total charge
- concessions - £2.05 plus 80p reservation charge = £2.85 total charge
Renewal and reservation email reminders
If you have an online library account you can sign up for email reminders. We will then send you reminders when books are due for renewal and when reserved books are ready for collection. You can sign up from the 'contact options' link which you will see when you log in to your library account.
