Hertfordshire Libraries – Ready Reads request form

Ready Reads is a new way to borrow books from Hertfordshire libraries. Simply let us know what you like to read, which of our participating libraries you’d like to collect your order from, and we’ll choose a selection of books for you. You won’t be able to request specific authors or titles, but we’ll do our best to find books you’ll enjoy.
There are 6 books in each adult and teen Ready Reads pack and 12 books in each children's Ready Reads pack.

You can order packs of books for yourself and other family members on this form. Once you’ve submitted it, we’ll select a pack based on your choices and contact you when it is ready for collection. We’ll even issue the books to your card, so all you will have to do is collect your pack.

Please be aware that our libraries are offering limited Ready Reads collection times. Visit your local library page for more information.
