Serve yourself at Mold Library
A self-service kiosk has been opened at Mold Library this month.
The kiosk will help to speed up transactions for borrowers who have
straightforward loans and returns, an option that is already available at
Deeside and Holywell Libraries.
Staff are on hand to show library visitors how to use the kiosk and to check
that their membership card is compatible.
Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Education, Councillor Chris
“This will help customers as they can access the self-service quickly for
straightforward transactions rather than wait for a member of staff to become
available. The self-service kiosk can print receipts for items borrowed and
returned. As the kiosk can read the details of a pile of books in one go,
rather than scanning individual titles, it is ideal for families who have
different members borrowing a number of books. As a service, we appreciate that
not all our customers will wish to take advantage of the facility, however we
envisage that it will release some staff time for more proactive reader
Staff will continue to provide a service for those who prefer not to use this
