Book Takeaway
From Monday 27th April we will be opening every Monday from 10 am to 12 noon for you to select a book from our Takeaway shelf of popular titles, weather permitting. The shelves will be outside the door to the library.

Please come in by the entrance nearest the Chemist and exit through the other gateway, one person at a time. Please select a book or two after having looked at the titles. Please do not pick up the books to examine them and then replace them. You will have to judge the book by its cover. 

None of the books on the shelves will have been handled for at least three days, the official guideline for avoiding contamination. If you want to return a book or donate others we will be devising a way of doing this in due course.

As the range of books on the shelves will be quite limited we are also allowing anyone, whether a member of the library or not, to borrow up to 2 books (5 for children) from our Harbury Library Blue Label Collection of titles. For more information please go to our Blue Label Collection page.

While preparing and operating the Book Takeaway we will be following government regulations and advice concerning Social Distancing, Isolation and the Handling of Books. For more information please see our page about Libraries and Covid-19.
