Reserving Items

Reserving Items

You can reserve any item that is already on loan. Please note there is a charge for this service at the Guille-Allès Library and the Priaulx Library and a valid library card is required to place reservations.

Reservations placed online are not available the same day. If you want to reserve an item that is not on loan please contact a member of staff.

You can reserve items in several ways:

  • Call in to the library and fill out a reservation form.
  • Call the main library number (+44 1481 720392) with the details of the item you wish to reserve. Details may also be sent by email to ga@library.gg or by post.
  • Items may also be reserved via the online catalogue. Search the online catalogue for the item you want and click the 'reserve this item' button. You will need your library card number. Please note that you may only reserve items that are in stock at the Guille-Allès Library via the online service at present.
  • You will be notified by post when the item is ready for you to collect.
