CCTV cameras are in constant operation during Smart opening hours. This enables the premises to be remotely monitored to alert staff of any issues. The purpose of obtaining CCTV footage is to record activities within the library, to prevent and detect crime and to ensure the safety of users in the library. You can read more about the CCTV systems used by the council and the fair processing notice.
Barred library members and library members who have received a final warning are not able to access Smart Libraries.
You’ll need to visit a Smart Library during staffed hours so that a member of staff can complete your induction with you. Please take with you:
the confirmation email you received after completing the induction form (you don’t need to print this and can show it on your phone or device)
ID (as you may be asked to prove your date of birth)
your Leicestershire library card
During your visit you’ll also be asked to sign a Smart Library User Agreement.
This completes your Smart Library induction if you have any questions or are not confident about how to use a Smart Library after completing this induction please let the library know and they’ll book a face-to-face induction with you.
