Users are now able to issue and return books, DVDs and other
materials for themselves using the newly-installed self-service
Councillor David Hall, Cabinet Member with responsibility for
the Library Service, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Self-service
reduces queues at peak times and lets staff to focus on customer
enquiries. The kiosks are simple to operate, though users will
need to remember their membership card and PIN."
Kate Turner, who has managed the refit for Somerset Libraries
Service, added: "The public will notice some major changes.
Weve taken the opportunity to refurbish the library, as
well as installing the self-service technology. Burnham Library
is a special place that belongs to the whole community."

and poetry activity event called 'Imagine a Martian' for children
aged 5-9 on Friday 2nd November from 11am-12.15pm.
