I borrowed some books the other day from Nottinghamshire libraries. Despite many of the UK’s libraries facing huge cutbacks and closure at the moment I was impressed that Nottinghamshire seems well ahead of its South Yorkshire counterparts; no dull and dreary miserable stinky space here like some of these places often tend to be. This was fresh, up to the minute, clean, welcoming and best of all it had people using it. It boasted self-service machines which I’ve not come across in Doncaster. It allows borrowers to self-issue, self-renew and self-return. All you need is a pin. Times have changed.
