What is it?

Our library catalogue contains details of books, CDs, DVDs and other items held in Bolton Libraries. You can use it to reserve or renew books.

You can search for items by author, title and keyword. The search results will tell where the item is being held and if it's available for loan.

You can use this to request an item not in stock at Bolton Libraries. Requested items will be considered for purchase where they are available in the UK, however, we cannot guarantee to buy every item requested.
