ST Ives library is to close for two weeks while new self-service technology is installed.

The library is the latest to get the new self-service machines which Cambridgeshire County Council said have already been successful in six other county libraries.

CCC said the technology allows library staff more time to provide assistance and help customers find books and information.

Library users can issue and return books themselves as well as all of the other items available at libraries such as DVDs and CDs. The self-service kit also allows users to renew items and pay fines.

Each library member will need a PIN number to use the self-service machines.

CCC is also taking the opportunity to make some other improvements at the library, including installing new customer service points and book display units.
