Library opening hours at Springfield Community Campus have been extended and new self-service machines unveiled to enable residents to borrow books on Sundays and outside opening hours.

The library, which more than 2,000 people visited during its first four days, will be open 9am-6pm on Monday and Friday and 9am-5pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.

Self-service machines mean the library is also available until 10pm on weekdays and between 8am-6pm on Saturdays and 8.30am-9pm on Sundays.

Anyone with a library card can use the self-service machines to take out, renew or return books while the campus is open, although no DVDs are available to borrow outside of library opening hours. Campus staff will also be able to help customers when the library is closed.
