A book ordering service will be extended across all 18 libraries in Caerphilly County Borough.
The ‘Order and Collect’ service lets residents request library books, which they can then collect from libraries across the borough.
The scheme first launched in August, but books could only be collected from seven libraries in the borough.
However, books can be collected from every council-run library in the borough from Monday (November 23).
These are: Aberbargoed, Abercarn, Abertridwr, Bargoed, Bedwas, Blackwood, Caerphilly, Deri, Llanbradach, Machen, Nelson, New Tredegar, Newbridge, Oakdale, Pengam, Rhymney, Risca and Ystrad Mynach.

Since July, a LibraryLink home delivery service has also been available to eligible residents, including to those shielding and those over the age of 70 who are unable to access to digital library services.
Libraries in the borough closed on March 20 due to the coronavirus outbreak.
