When arriving to collect your books:

  • The doors are open and there is no need to touch any surfaces;
  • There is hand sanitiser by the doors;
  • Please wear a mask if you can - volunteers and staff will be wearing one too;
  • We'll bring the books to you - please give your name and collection time;
  • Books have already been issued so there is no need to hand your library card in.

How to return books

You do not need to pre-arrange a time to return books and they should go in a box on the front desk, they will be quarantined for 72 hours and then removed from your ticket.

Do we accept book donations?

Yes we do!

If the books are:

  • in good condition (i.e. would you want to borrow it yourself?
  • preferably less than 2 years old

then we would welcome them at Baildon Library.

Just drop them off when you're passing by
