Want to read up Notts and cricket? We have the answers...
We are pleased to offer current members of Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club the opportunity to borrow books from the Wynne-Thomas Library.
As an NCCC member, can I borrow books from the Library?
Yes! The Lending Service is an additional benefit of Club membership.
How can I borrow books from the Library?
Just bring your 2023 membership card to the Library and register as a user. Then choose the books you’d like to borrow and have them ‘signed out’ by the staff member or heritage volunteer. You must show your valid membership card each time you borrow books from the Library.
Which books can I borrow?
Any book on the open shelves, except for the ‘Nottinghamshire County Cricket’ and ‘Peter Wynne-Thomas’ sections and the NCCC scorebooks. These are available to Library users for reference, but are not available for loan. However a range of books about Notts cricket and by Peter can be borrowed from the bookcase by the entrance door.
How many books can I borrow?
You can have up to three books ‘out on loan’ at any one time.
When can I borrow books from the Library?
You can borrow books whenever the Library is open – ie on every County Championship and Ashes Test matchday in 2023, from the start of the lunch interval until the end of the tea interval.
The Library will also be open from 1:00 to 4:00 pm for the one-day matches on 22 April, 5 August and on 5, 16 and 23 September. We also hope to be open at other certain times during Heritage Open Days (8 – 17 September) and Libraries Week (October, dates tbc).
Full details about opening arrangements are provided in the ‘History and Library’ section of the Trent Bridge website, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
How long can I keep the books that I’ve borrowed?
You can borrow books for up to a month – ie until the same day of the following month.
Can I renew books that I’m currently borrowing?
Books can be renewed once for a further month by emailing email@example.com or by speaking to the staff member or heritage volunteer in the Library.
Are there any charges for borrowing books?
There is no charge for borrowing books; this is a benefit of your NCCC membership.
How do I return the books when I’ve finished with them?
You can return the book(s) to the Library when it is open. Or when the Library is closed, please hand the book(s) that you borrowed to a staff member in the Ticket Office between 9:30 am and 4:30 pm on weekdays.
Can I borrow back copies of cricket magazines, like ‘The Cricketer’, ‘Wisden Cricket Monthly’ and ‘The Nightwatchman’ ?
At present you are welcome to browse these magazines in the Library, but they are not available for loan. However if you are interested in borrowing back copies please tell a member of staff and we will consider including these in the Lending Service.
We would welcome any suggestions and comments about this Lending Service. Just speak to a staff member or heritage volunteer in the Library, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
