  • Reference items

    Some books that are very precious, rare and/or contain important information for the public. These types of books are usually added to our reference collection where the intention is to always have these books readily available for all to read rather than be checked out.

  • Restricted access items

    Restricted access items are books that are kept safe behind the counter as they are either extremely popular or rare and, may be damaged (tattoos or Bob Marley), or, of a sensitive nature and may contain information or images that some may find offensive (sex or gangs).
