You can also reserve items:

We will contact you when your item is ready for collection and will give you 7 days to collect it. If you don't collect it within 7 days it will be returned to the shelves for other people to borrow.

If your local library doesn't have what you're looking for, you can order it from a different library.

Charges for reserving an item

  • No charge if we get the item from a Kent library.
  • £3 if we get the item from a SELMS partner library.
  • £4 if we get the item from other libraries.
  • Exempt card holders - no charge unless we have to get the item from outside Kent.

You still have to pay the reservation charge even if we cannot get the item for you.
