Sandwell Libraries and Archives Coronavirus Update

All libraries in Sandwell are now closed due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

We have put a number of measures in place to support our customers:

  • All items that have been borrowed are now due back 30 September 2020.
  • Customers can renew items up to 12 times. This can be done on this website if you have a PIN. If you don't have a PIN for this website, send an email to library_service@sandwell.gov.uk and we can help you set one.
  • We are providing instant access to BorrowBox - our free eBook and eAudiobooks service - for new customers who join online. You can join here. Customers will receive a temporary membership number, and an email alert which includes a link to create a PIN number. Customers can then sign up to BorrowBox and begin borrowing items immediately.

Thank you to our customers for your understanding and support.

Updates from the council on Coronavirus and support are available here.

Please note that we closed down our Automated Telephone Renewal Line (0121 569 4949) on 31 March 2020. This is due to rising costs and declining use. All items are now due back on 30 September 2020, so there is no need to renew items until after that date. We apologise for any inconvenience.
