Exciting News Regarding our New Library Catalogue

Live Borders library service is preparing for the introduction of a new library management system and new library catalogue.

This will bring a host of benefits to members of the public.  You will see these benefits publicised in our libraries and across our social media platform.  They include an easier to use library catalogue, being able to borrow books straight from our new app, being able to see items you have borrowed from Borrowbox in your online library account and the ability to manage your whole family’s library account in one place.

The introduction of the new system and the decommissioning of the old system will involve a period of transition where neither system will be live and operational.

This period runs from Monday 5th February until Wednesday 21 February 2024.

All libraries will still be open as normal and library members will still have access to our activities.

If you would like to borrow physical items during this period please remember to bring your library card with you.

Over this period staff in the libraries may use manual recording of some library transactions, and we would welcome your patience and understanding over this period if book transactions take a little bit longer.

Please note that the library catalogue will be unavailable so reservations will not be able to be placed.  We will not be able to join new members online, but our staff can help you join at our libraries.

Along with the new catalogue we will be launching a new app called the Spydus Mobile app which will replace the old library app.   You will be able to download this from your app store by searching for Spydus.

If you have any queries or need help, please call us on 01750 726400 or email us at libraries@liveborders1.org.uk  and we will be happy to help.
