Change of timescale on loaning a library book

The length of time people can borrow a book from Lincolnshire libraries will change from four weeks to three from October 1.

The change comes as GLL, which took over the running of the libraries in April, looks to improve the library service. It says the change in loan time will allow better customer selection and reduce reservation waiting times, as well as bringing the county in line with other authorities,

Items borrowed from mobile libraries will retain the four week loan in line with schedule stops.

To ensure customers have time to adjust to the change in loan periods, an eight week fines amnesty will be held from October 1 to November 26. This will cover the first two new loan periods and mean that customers won’t be penalised for forgetting about the new arrangements.

GLL is also planning to introduce a new look children’s library at Stamford Library after the children’s areas at Lincoln and Boston were successfully improved.
