Libraries are open for Ready Reads – Putting free books in the hands of children

We all know how it important it is for children to have access to books.

During the current lockdown, Hertfordshire libraries are offering a new way to borrow books, Ready Reads- We select you collect.

During this lockdown period, you can order books for your child and yourself using the online form and then collect from a selected library.

Go online here to place your order! Remember you must be a library member.

If you are unable to access online services, you can contact Libraries on 0300 123 4049 and a member of the team will be able to help fill out the form.

We understand some families have not felt able to visit the library for a while and this may be an easier way to borrow. Also, our requests service is fully operational so for specific books these can be ordered through our catalogue and picked up in the same way.

Never have books been more important, not only supporting children with their reading but also with their health and wellbeing, enabling them to leave behind the daily stresses and escape into imaginary worlds.

You can find the latest information about Hertfordshire libraries re-opening plans and our online services on our website.
