Click and Collect at your Local LibraryPlus
The move to COVID-19 Alert Level 2 on Wednesday 8 September will mean South Taranaki readers can again access physical books from their local LibraryPlus via the ‘click and collect’ contactless system.
South Taranaki District Council libraries and cultural services manager Cath Sheard says, while the LibraryPlus are open as normal, staff realise not everyone will feel comfortable coming in to select books. Staff have decided to offer contactless ‘click and collect’ for the foreseeable future.
People can place holds at home through the online catalogue or ask staff to select items for them. When people receive an email or phone call that their holds are ready, they’re welcome to choose a time for contactless collection and staff will leave the books on a table at the door.
“You can even start ordering books now, so we can have them ready for you to collect.” says Cath.
Cath says residents can find ‘how to’ videos on the South Taranaki Libraries Facebook page showing how to search for books, and how to place holds.
“All books are issued for four weeks, and there are no fines for late returns. If you would like to renew your items, phone or email and we’ll be happy to help,” she says.
If residents are unable to access the catalogue from home, or if you are unsure of your login, or need your password reset please phone 0800 111 323 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and staff will help you out.
