The majority of Wolverhampton’s libraries are now open for controlled browsing, computer use and Select and Collect services.

Central, Bilston, Finchfield, Pendeford, Penn, Tettenhall, Warstones and Wednesfield libraries are open for browsing and PC access.

To allow social distancing and control numbers, people must book a 30-minute session in advance by calling 01902 552025. Customers need to be a member of the library service to book a session – people can join for free via Libraries or by calling 01902 552025 – and must also wear a face covering indoors in line with national regulations, unless they are exempt.

Meanwhile, the Select and Collect service, allowing library members to reserve books and other items and collect them at a pre-arranged time, is available from Central, Bilston, East Park, Finchfield, Low Hill, Pendeford, Penn, Spring Vale, Tettenhall, Warstones and Wednesfield libraries.

Library members can pre-order titles online at Libraries, by emailing or by calling 01902 552025. 

Members can also continue to download bestselling eBooks and eAudiobooks for free via the BorrowBox library app on Apple or Android phones, tablets and computers. 

Councillor Stephen Simkins, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for City Economy, said: “Customers are really enjoying being able to access our libraries once again, with eight branches now open for browsing and PC use, and Select and Collect available from 12. 

“We are working hard to keep staff and customers safe, and will look to open up further as soon as we are able to do so."

It's free to join Wolverhampton's libraries – to find out more, please visit Libraries, call 01902 552025 or follow the library service on social media at Facebook and Twitter
