If you've borrowed a book before our libraries closed, your loan period has automatically been extended to 4 May. We will be reviewing this on an ongoing basis.
You can also now renew your loan (over the phone, or online) up to 4 times.
We'd prefer you kept your borrowed books at home, and self isolte. If you really need to return them you can do so by putting them in the Morley Library returns chute between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday (excluding Public Holidays). This will not involve any contact with staff.
