From 1 February 2016 a range of ‘self-service’ options for users will be available from 9am to 9pm, Monday to Friday, in addition to existing services.
Councillor Penny Holbrook, cabinet member for skills, learning and culture, said: “Last summer’s decision to move the nationally renowned Brasshouse language service to the Library of Birmingham means that the service will be able to connect with even more learners within a world class setting – and the Library of Birmingham can extend its opening hours again.
The increased ‘self-service’ offer – “LoB Express” – will include access to:
- popular fiction and non-fiction books, special collections and promotions
- book borrowing and returns
- library registration and reservation service
- study space
- access to free Wi-Fi
- use of computers and printing facilities (coming soon)
The opening hours from 1 February 2016 will be as follows –
Full service: Monday and Tuesday 11am – 7pm, Wednesday to Saturday 11am to 5pm
