Circulation at the Library: Request and Collect


We enter July living with a state of emergency in Victoria. Circulation by the system of Request and Collect is available to members of the Library. You are invited to borrow the books you need. Here is the procedure.


WEDNESDAY IS COLLECT DAY.

We at the Carmelite Library are sensitive to the needs of our borrowers at this time. The Library is closed to the public. However, in line with library practice elsewhere in the world, the Library is offering ‘request and collect’ circulation for the period of the pandemic.

This is an invitation to ‘request and collect’ books from the Carmelite Library. Simply find the books you wish to borrow on the Library’s online catalogue, list author, title, and call number, then send your request via email to the Librarian at librarian@carmelitelibrary.org Limit: ten books.

Books for contactless pickup are placed every Wednesday on a table in the side entrance foyer of the Carmelite Hall (pictured) where you can come and collect them. Books will have been wiped and parcelled up. Each parcel will be clearly marked with the borrower’s name. As usual, loans may be extended.

Books are returned in the Returns Box positioned in the same space. All returns are quarantined at least 72 hours.

I am here to receive requests from today. Please do not hesitate to send me your list.

Philip Harvey
Librarian
The Carmelite Library
