Over the past few months we've been hard at work on a new sorting system, which you can now see through the glass doors on the way to the Children's section.
Items returned through the outdoor book drop are identified and checked back in, then the belts and rollers put them in the appropriate bins with others of their type. This means fewer hands have to touch items to get them back on the shelves.
This, along with other improvements, equates to faster turn-around of items, getting you the books and more you want - quicker than ever.
