A new self-service system at St Ives Library will begin a trial period on August 18.
The new system, known as Open+, will allow library uses to access resources, including book borrowing, WiFi, and pre-book meeting rooms, outside of staffed hours.
Cambridgeshire County Council is holding an induction session on Thursday from 1.30-4.30pm at the library to help users familiarise themselves with the new system.
Cllr Mac McGuire, the county council’s chairman of highways and community infrastructure committee said: “Library staff will be on hand to answer your questions about Open+ at two special induction sessions.
“When the self-service system goes live, we will be asking for your feedback as part of the trial. Your feedback will help us decide what role Open+ will play in the library service in future.”
