IMG_7640You use your Library Card Number and PIN to reserve books and other items when you browse our catalogue.

There is a charge of 25p for book reservations by adult customers, paid on collection.

You can search by author, title or ISBN if you have it.  There are advanced options in the drop down menu if you only require paperback, children’s books, toys, newly published etc

Once you have found the item you wish to reserve, press the place reservation button on the right hand side.   A box will pop up asking you to login.

Your library card number is written next to the barcode on your library card. It starts Y000000. It always starts with a capital Y and has no spaces.

Your PIN is a four digit number which is used like a password.

Once you have reserved the book a second box will pop up asking you which library you wish to collect the item from.  Pick from the drop down list and press place reservation.

Once your books are ready we will contact you by email or text message depending on the details you gave us when you joined, and you will have a week to collect.   You are able to manage your reservations, including suspending them, within your online account.

News!

You can also see the books we have available as you search online, with Library Extension.

All you need to do is download and enable the extension for your browser. It will show if we have a book on our catalogue or e-library, while you’re browsing sites such as Amazon, Audible and Waterstones. It also works with reading sites like Goodreads and Fantasticfiction.com. So you can immediately see if a book is available to borrow from us for FREE!

We weren’t involved in making this plugin but we think it looks good. For more details and information visit libraryextension.com

If you have any questions or want to query a reservation you can email contact@exploreyork.org.uk.
