How to Ring and Read
Low Fell Library will continue to offer our 'ring and read' which allows you to request up to 6 books, giving details of the kind you like and our librarians will select appropriate titles which you can collect when convenient. All you will need to do is fill in the online form by clicking Ring&Read, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 0191 433 6408 during our revised hours and tell us about the sort of books you like to read. We will choose some books for you and let you know when you can collect them. We are happy to choose books for each member of your family too - if you have children we will supply age appropriate titles for them. Unfortunately, we are not able to accept requests for specific titles at this stage.
Library books may also be returned from this date and there are no fines to pay. Remember to have your library ticket to hand when you ring or fill in the form!
We are unable to provide a delivery service however, if you are shielding at home you may request a doorstep delivery in exactly the same way from Gateshead Council-run Libraries.
Please check our Facebook account and website for more updates.
*Not everyone is online - if you know anyone who might be interested but not digital please pass on details of accessing this service by telephone*
E-Books from Borrow Box
You can also borrow books electronically via Gateshead Library's Borrow Box scheme more details below (we will also be including flyers advertising the service in our book collection bags).
The digital collection gives you 24 hour access to thousands of e-books and hundreds of e-audiobooks. It's available to all Gateshead library members.
With Borrowbox you can:
borrow up to 10 eBooks and 6 eAudiobooks free of charge for 3 weeks
avoid fines as books are returned automatically at the end of your loan period
return books before the end of the 3 weeks - we would encourage you to do this as there is currently a big demand for titles
renew your eBook or eAudiobook twice - you will be prompted to do this
reserve the title and you will receive it on the date that the book is due to be returned - you may even receive the book earlier if it is returned before the due date
join the online book club that meets on Facebook - just look for
All you need is your Library ID (the code on your green ticket beginning DD9) and your pin. If you don't have one or have forgotten it just call the library and we will be happy to set up a new one. To get started just click on the Borrow Box logo above.
