Please follow the instructions that appear to reserve the book.

When the book is returned you will be emailed to tell you the book is waiting for you to pick it up at the information desk.

The book will sit at the information desk for 3-5 days for you to collect it after which it gets returned to the shelf.

You can cancel a reserve at any time by just letting us know at the information desk or by emailing
