Self service machines are coming to Craven Arms Library as the future is secured for another three years

We have very exciting news at CasCA.
We have recently agreed with Shropshire Council that we will continue to house the library there for another three years.
And Shropshire Council has said the long awaited self service machines will be installed this year!

We are delighted!
When we took on the library four years ago it was to save it from closing down and stop the people of Craven Arms losing a vital resource.
It was originally just for three years too, but having extended it for a further year in 2017, the council have now said the library will remain at CasCA in Newington Way until 2021.

The staff employed by The Furniture Scheme, the charity which operates the building, have been librarians for the four years that the library has been in CasCA and carried it out brilliantly, especially as that wasn’t supposed to happen. We really appreciate that they have risen to the challenge, so well done team CasCA!

Whilst we are very happy to help anyone who needs assistance and answer any questions that we are able to, we will also be delighted to show customers how to use the self service machine.

You see these at other libraries across Shropshire, ones that are 24 hours but don’t have staff all the time. They are simple to use machines and mean people can take a book out of the library when our staff may be busy helping with computer sessions, booking people on to sports activities or a variety of other roles that they carry out in our busy centre.
