Libraries across the Vale of Glamorgan have set up a new click and collect service for local residents to order books online or by the phone.
Despite the library buildings remaining closed to the public due to the Coronavirus lockdown restrictions, locals will now be able to order books online or via phone call to collect at a date and time allotted to them by staff via email or phone call.
Customers will then be able to return their books at any time during the library's opening hours by placing them in the return bins at the entrances of the buildings.
The new click and collect service will operate at Barry, Cowbridge, Llantwit Major and Penarth Libraries. All other Libraries remain closed for the time being.
The service will also involve a lucky dip feature designed for those who are not sure what to read next. Staff will put together a lucky dip bag of the types of books you like to read.
To order books, talking books and DVDs online from the catalogue valeofglamorgan.gov.uk/libraries or by phone.
