  • What is Click and Collect?
    You can still reserve books as normal through the online catalogue https://slough.spydus.co.uk/
    However, if you aren’t sure what you want or just would like some suggestions, you can contact your local library using the form you can find on our online catalogue or email Clickandcollect@slough.gov.uk or telephone your preferred library.
    The Curve: 01753 875533 Britwell: 01753 522869
    Cippenham: 01628 661745 Langley: 01753 542153
    A selection of books will then be chosen for you by our local library staff. We will call or email you with a date and a timeslot to come and collect your books..
  • When can I return my books?
    You can come to any of our libraries to return your books during our temporary opening hours – Monday to Friday 10am-4pm at all libraries. You will find a container at the entrance where you can place them. Any returned books will be placed in quarantine for 72 hours.
  • My books are overdue. Will I get fined?
    We are not currently issuing fines. If you have any issues, please get in touch. You can renew your books in the normal way – online or by telephone or use our library app. Issue and renewal dates have been extended to 12 weeks.
  • What about activities?
    Library activities and events can still be found online on our social media platforms. You can visit our social media platforms, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, to view regular activities such as story and rhyme time, LEGO®, crafts and seated exercise, plus a whole host of new content, including special events like Summer Reading Challenge. Get involved by joining our chess, film or book clubs. Please note all shows have been cancelled until the end of August. (Further information about upcoming shows at The Curve)
