Library to close for improvements
Thursday, 01 November 2012
FRYERNS Library is to close for 11 days for improvement.
When it reopens visitors will find self-service machines to check out, return or renew their books and other borrowed items.
RFID machines take the routine work away from assistants, leaving them free to help customers use library facilities and deal with enquiries.
The units are easy to use; it simply involves scanning the library card, placing items on the pad and following the touch screen instructions.
With up to 24,000 visits to Essex libraries a day, there is a need for self-service machines.
Essex County Council cabinet member for culture, Jeremy Lucas, said: “We are confident the new machines will make borrowing items from Essex libraries quicker and more convenient.”
The library, in Whitmore Way, will be closed from December 3 until 10am on December 15.
The nearest libraries while Fryerns is closed are Basildon, Vange and Pitsea. Visit www.essex.gov.uk/libraries for opening hours.
