East Riding Libraries
From Thursday, 5 November, East Riding Libraries will revert back to an 'Order and Collect' service, which was successfully and safely introduced after the first lockdown.
These are the details :
Library members are reminded that they also have free access to thousands of eBooks and eAudiobooks, plus 50 popular eMagazines and a huge selection of eNewspapers with their library card and pin, so those staying safe at home can still access the library. To join the library free and find out more about using the various online resources, visit https://www.eastridinglibraries.co.uk
For those isolating, East Riding Libraries have also partnered with the Tigers Trust to offer free delivery of books - contact your local branch for more information.
Customer Service Centres are closed for public drop-ins to avoid unnecessary contact where possible to support the national lockdown. For residents needing essential customer service support, many answers can be found on the website www.eastriding.gov.uk or please contact the call centre on 01482 393939. Please be aware that the volume of calls may be higher than usual.
The Mobile Library Service will continue to provide an order and collect service and customers of the "at home" service will still have their books delivered. For any questions about the mobile library service, please call the mobile library team on 01482 392749.
