Sets of books and scores
Reading groups, music or drama groups can hire sets of books or scores. You’ll need to ask library staff to reserve them for you because they can’t be reserved online.
There’s an annual charge for reading group membership. Music scores sets must be returned to the library where you collected them, and charges will be made for any sets returned incomplete, out of order or damaged.
