Since re-opening on Monday 6 July, the East Riding Libraries team have dealt with thousands of queries and book reservations, and just as many books returned. Many customers have relished being able to borrow physical books again; some are converts to the free eBooks available with their library card; but many are missing browsing and picking books up from displays in branches.
The East Riding Libraries team have put together some helpful hints on getting reading inspiration using the online catalogue: https://library.eastriding.gov.uk and logging in with your library card and pin.
Councillor Shaun Horton, portfolio holder for coastal regeneration and tourism including culture and leisure, said: "Until we are able to reopen our libraries for customers to browse through books, all these services are invaluable for people in these challenging times."
East Riding Libraries continue to offer an Order and Collect service, where customers can reserve books online and then collect from a library of their choice once available, and fines continue to be suspended until further notice.
