From Monday, August 3, it will initially offer a 'we select, you collect' service through which customers can pre-order books and other items online and pick them up at an agreed time.

Members will be able to request specific titles via the online library catalogue from Monday. Requests for specific genres can be made from Wednesday, by emailing libraries@wolverhampton.gov.uk or calling 01902 552025.

The click and collect service will then be rolled out to Wednesfield, Warstones and Bilston libraries from Monday, August 17.

Councillor Stephen Simkins, Wolverhampton Council's cabinet member for city economy, said: "We are pleased that we will shortly be in a position to safely begin reopening our libraries to customers, initially by offering a click and collect service at Central Library from August 3 and then at three of our district libraries a fortnight later.

"I know how well loved our libraries are and that, while many customers have been enjoying our digital offering during the lockdown, they are looking forward to getting their hands on physical books once again."
