Lincolnshire’s library service is introducing a more modern and user-friendly online catalogue.

During March, the county’s library management system is being upgraded, making it easier for customers to find what they need.

In order to make the improvements, there will be a five-day transition period between 14 and 18 March, when customers will not be able to:

- Reserve books

- Search the library catalogue

- Pay fines

- Access their library account

- Access e-books

- Access e-audio books

However, they will still be able to:

- Return items

- Renew items

- Borrow items

- Access online resources

To avoid any problems, the service is also extending the return date for items due back during that period to April 15.

Jonathan Platt, county libraries and heritage manager, said: “With more and more people choosing to do things online, it’s important we make these improvements.

“The new-look site will be easier to use, making our services more accessible. I’m sure customers will soon see the benefits.”
