New Technology - The Countdown Begins!
Visitors to Binfield library will be the first to experience new opportunities to access library services in a more convenient way, through the introduction of new technology.
The library service is busy preparing the building, staff and volunteers for the introduction of new technology that will include secure self-service kiosks providing users with quick and easy access to their library accounts, allowing them to issue and discharge their own books; book access to a computer; pay for printing and photocopying or pay any fines with cash or cards. The technology will also allow users to access the library outside the existing hours of service if they so wish.The introduction of self-service technology will allow library staff more time to carry out their other specialist duties such as and helping with enquiries, training customers to use digital resources and organising events. More space will be created on the library floor, with the removal of large counters.
Experienced library staff and volunteers will be ready to introduce and familiarise customers with the new technology.
We value the input from our customers as part of this pilot launch at Binfield library and we welcome feedback on your views and customer experiences. Please let us know what you think since we will use this feedback to help ensure the smoothest possible roll-out of the new technology in all our other libraries across Bracknell Forest.
We will bring you more on the dates of the introduction very soon.
