How to Borrow Health Promotion Resources

To borrow resources, you’ll need to be a member of the Bradford NHS libraries, which we are part. You can become a member by completing a registration form in the library. Please bring some work or personal ID for this.

Once you are a registered you can borrow resources at your convenience. Books and teaching packs can be loaned for four weeks, but all other resources can only be loaned for the times that you require them for, ideally less than two weeks. This allows the resources to be used by more people. We recommend people place advanced bookings on the resources to ensure they are available for the dates they require them. Bookings can be made up to a year in advance. There is no limit on the number of resources you can loan at a time.

All resources must be borrowed and returned from the Library based at Lynfield Mount Hospital during our opening hours (see below).

 

Visiting the library

You are welcome to visit anytime during our opening hours, 08:30-17:00 Monday to Thursday and 08:30-16:30 Friday. The library is closed on weekends and bank holidays. You don’t need an appointment to visit, but please let us know if you are planning to come as a group of 4 or more.

The library is located in a building just to the right of the main reception at Lynfield Mount Hospital. The library is also shown on the large site map signs in the site car park. Access to the library is gained via a glass door, please press the buzzer on this door and bring a form of work or personal ID for security identification.
