Local Libraries Open To All Through Universal Membership
October 5, 2009 by Rob Powell
Greenwich libraries are now able to loan books, DVDs and CDs to members of any library after a change to membership rules.
A new universal membership initiative from the Society of Chief Librarians means that members of any public library will be able to borrow from any of the 4,000 participating libraries.
Councillor John Fahy, Greenwich Cabinet member for Culture and Olympics, said, “This is great news and another step in the right direction towards making libraries more accessible than ever before. I hope everyone intends to take advantage of such a great opportunity, I certainly intend to.”
Although books can now be borrowed from any library, they do still need to be returned to the library from which they were loaned.
