Helping you find your next great read. You can request a selection of books, audio books, fiction and non-fiction to collect at libraries in the city.


Great News! We are carrying on with Click & Collect.  For full details and updates on what is happening in libraries and all about using the library, please visit our dedicated updates page.

In need of some books from the library?

We’ve all made changes & had to be adaptable over the last year, and launching Click & Collect is just one of many ways Nottingham City Libraries has adapted.

Tell us what you like to read and our staff will select up to 24 books for you, including children’s books, fiction, large print, non-fiction and spoken word from any of the libraries taking part in Click and Collect.

Our staff will contact you once they have your selections ready so you can collect them safely and we will keep your items for one week. Click and Collect is available at selected libraries and delivered to you in line with both government and public health guidelines.

  • If you are not already a library member, join the library online before you use the service.
  • Think about what types of books you want. For inspiration, have a look at our online catalogue.
  • Fill in our Click and Collect form that will ask you what your favourite authors and type of books are.
  • If you can’t access the online form, don’t worry, call one of the available libraries where a member of staff will go through the form with you and submit your order, or email with your name and phone number and we will call you back to arrange your order.
  • Based on your preferences, staff will do their best to find books that match your choice from the stock in their library. (Please note: due to limited availability we cannot guarantee a specific title or author).
  • Once staff have chosen your books, they will contact you to let you know you can collect your items.
  • Please do not attend your local library to collect your books until you have received your confirmation.
  • We will keep your items for one week
  • Staff will issue your books to your library card and place them in one of our unused paper bags.
  • Our fines amnesty ends 31 July 2021 Had your books a long time? Bring them back to avoid fines, contact us if you need help.
  • Please bring your library card or the library card number with you. You can ask a friend or family member to collect on your behalf, just let us know their name on the form or when we arrange your collection.
  • To manage the process safely please keep socially distant when entering and queuing in the library
  • To make using the library as safe as possible for everyone, when you collect your books, face coverings must be worn indoors unless you fall within the exemption criteria.
  • Staff will be there and will have your bag ready for you to collect.
