***Books still available via delivery service***

The ongoing lockdown means that Stokenchurch Community Library’s open-door service has had to close again until further notice.

However, we are still able to offer access to books via our home delivery / collection service - see next item.

Do not worry about items you have out on loan: loan periods will be extended, and no overdue charges will be applied.

-----------------

***Book delivery / collection service***

This is how the delivery / collection service works: If you live in and around Stokenchurch, Radnage, Lane End and Ibstone, borrowed items can be delivered and collected to / from your home, or, by arrangement, from outside the library.

To order books, or to arrange a collection of items you have finished with, you can let us know in one of the following ways: by e-mail (preferred) to enquiries.scl@gmail.com , by leaving a phone message on 07923 427314, or putting a note through our letter box. Please provide your name and a contact phone number (landline if possible) and someone will call you back.

If you give us an idea of what titles you want, we can make a selection for you, or we can discuss it over the phone, whatever suits you. Should you wish to see what items are available, you can use the advanced search facility on the Buckinghamshire Libraries catalogue (follow the links from www.buckinghamshire.gov.uk/libraries/).

-----------------

***Extensive e-resources also available***

Don't forget that Bucks Library members can also access a very extensive and ever-expanding range of e-resources.

Highlights, alongside the extensive range of e-books and e-audiobooks, are: access to 143 magazine titles; Newsreader which gives access to literally thousands of newspaper titles including some archival collections; and various on-line encyclopaedias. In addition (for a time-limited period, recently extended to the end of July) access is available from home to the Ancestries family history resource.

You do need to be a Bucks Library member to access these resources, and you will need your card details to log in; but even if you aren’t a member now, you can easily join on-line through a streamlined process.
