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.
  • No charge if you have an exempt card (for people with disabilities or mental health problems).

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