Library celebrations, loans changes this week
LIBRARY borrowing will enter a new era for many people who struggle to return their loans on time when a new system begins today.
The launch of a new loans regime marks the beginning of a week of celebration at Glenelg Libraries during Library and Information Week 2019.
Library members can receive new loans cards, and junior card-holding members will be issued with special cards that will be connected to the extra benefit of receiving fine-free borrowing if their loans become overdue.
Books that are lost or damaged would attract a fee, however, library and information services manager Yvette Parker said.
There are additional benefits for everyone under the new system.
In future all borrowers will have their loans automatically renewed twice if no-one else reserves the item before the due date.
