Charlbury Library - Open Access from 6th September

Customers of Charlbury Library will be pleased to know that open access will return from Monday 6th September. No barriers will be in place and you will be able to browse, borrow and return items via the self-service machine, as before. Please remember to bring your library card with you if you wish to borrow or renew items.

The red crates just inside the Community Centre doors for returning items into will no longer be in place from that date, but you will be able to return items directly through the self-service kiosk. The Community Centre currently opens at 9am and closes at 5pm each weekday evening and 4pm at weekends, so the library cannot be accessed outside of these times.

In line with all other Oxfordshire libraries, the self-service kiosk will not accept payment, either in cash or by card. Instead, you may pay charges online with your library card and PIN number or directly with a member of staff. The staffed hours will remain the same during September (Mondays 10am-1pm, Wednesdays 2-5pm & Fridays 2-5pm) with changes due to be made in October.

You will be welcome to collect your Reserved items from the Reservation Shelf and borrow them via the self-service kiosk even when no library staff are present. However, items are charged at £1.30 per reserved item and the self-service kiosk will not issue books when more than £5.00 is owing on a customer’s account.

The photocopier and public computers/printer will remain unavailable unless staff are present.

A gentle reminder…please wipe or remove muddy shoes before entering the library space, no eating or drinking and please supervise your children at all times to keep the space welcoming and tidy for all.  Thank you.
