The new system – the first for about 20 years – begins from next week, is more user friendly and features a website where people can search for titles and reserve a copy for collection.

They can also find suggestions for new reads and titles on topical themes and leave their own book reviews.

The high-tech system will also make it much easier for staff to manage the library stock across all Hartlepool’s library network, making books available where they are most needed.
