Sandwell Libraries and Archives Update 14 May 2021

More libraries will be opening from next week. Brandhall, Hamstead and Oakham Libraries are restarting services. They join the libraries listed below to offer an ‘order and collect’ service for books, and pre-booked computer sessions.

Order and Collect

Customers can reserve items using this website, or by phoning one of the libraries. Library staff will then contact customers when items are available, to arrange a date and time for collection.

Computers

A number of computers are available for use in each of the libraries, including printing, which need to be booked in advance by phone.

Returning items

Items can also be returned into drop-boxes at those libraries during the specified times as shown in the Library Details section.

Your Safety

When using a library, we provide hand sanitisers, and ask that customers wear a face covering and maintain distancing to stay safe at all times. Wipes are provided for computer users.
