Heaton’s library neighbourhood collection point will open to the public next month.
The facility, which replaces Heaton Library, will be set up in the foyer of the existing building on Monday, March 26.
Currently, the library shares the building with the children’s centre in New Hall Lane and in order to carry out some adjustments to the layout, the library will close on Friday, March 9.
The new collection point will be open to the public from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
The new-style service will enable people to borrow books via a self-service machine and computers will offer internet access.
Any special requests for books that aren’t on display can be made as normal via the library ordering service.
Ordered books can be delivered to the neighbourhood collection or any other library in the borough and people can return books to any library in the borough.
