The Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, Councillor Louise Gittins said: “Our new self-service technology will make it much quicker and easier to issue and return books and multimedia.
“Having self-service means we can reduce the size of the counter and have more room for the public.
“Self-service will enable staff to provide better customer service and there will always be a member of staff on duty if you need assistance and to help with queries and browsing for books.”
