As part of the Better Deal for Residents programme, libraries are undergoing a change programme, which includes the introduction of self-service technology for library users.In recent weeks, tags have been added to every item of stock, with the next stage of the project being the installation of self-service kiosks into all of the libraries. Unlike kiosks at supermarkets, they do not make comments about 'unexpected items in the bagging area' as they are much more user-friendly, and will be able to process cash and card payments.Installing this new technology in libraries will mean that each library will have to close for around 1 week. Whilst a library is closed, all other Harrow libraries remain open to drop items off and no items will be due for return to the closed library. Dates of closure will be publicised at least 4 weeks before a library closes.
