We all know how it important it is for children to have access to books. Despite the current lockdown situation, Hertfordshire libraries are open for Ready Reads.

Families can order books for their children and themselves using the online form and then collect from a selected library. If families are unable to access online services, please encourage them to contact us on 0300 123 4049 and a member of our team will be able to help fill out the form.

We understand some families have not felt able to visit the library for a while, this is an easy way to borrow. Also, our requests service is fully operational so for specific books these can be ordered through our catalogue and picked up in the same way. We also have an extensive online eBook and eAudio library BorrowBox.

 

Never have books been more important, not only supporting children with their reading and education but also with their health and wellbeing, enabling them to leave behind the daily stresses and escape into imaginary worlds. You can find the latest information about Hertfordshire libraries re-opening plans and our online services on our website.
