    Changes to use of lockers in the Original Archive Area

    • 14th January 2014

    We have experienced some problems with a limited number of lockers being available for use by visitors to the Archives as locker keys have been going missing. In order to ensure the facility continues to be made available for Archive users, starting from Monday 20th January the following changes will be made to our procedures:

  • Lockers will be restricted to Archive users during our opening hours.  Customers using the library, PCs and microfilm stock do not have to lock their bags away, but would be welcome to use the lockers if they would like to.    
  • Locker keys will be issued out to customers on their library cards, so if members do not already have a Worcestershire Library card they will need to apply for one.  This is a straightforward process, and identification showing a name and address is required.  
  • Keys will need to be returned to Archive staff before closing.  The closing times will be clearly displayed, and it will be the customer’s responsibility to return the key on time.
  • Failure to return the key upon closing will result in a fine.  This is £1 a day for the first 8 days, rising to £60 after that.  £60 is the cost of replacing the locks and keys on the locker. 
  • Comments are closed.
