Click and collect service from Botley Library during lockdown: residents need to complete a short online form available on the council’s website, telling the library what sort of books they like to read and how many they would like. Or residents can call 01865 897811. Experienced and knowledgeable library staff will handpick up to six books that fit the interests and preferences given. There is even an option to select a surprise extra book – maybe something a little bit different. The service also covers audiobooks and DVDs, although charges may apply for these. The service user will be notified when the books are ready for collection at one of the 14 participating libraries.
