Putnoe Library is closed while works take place to install self-service terminals.
It will reopen on Thursday after being shut since Monday.
The installation of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology will allow library users to check out and return their own books quickly and easily, hopefully resulting in fewer queues.
Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “Where we have introduced self-service terminals at libraries in the borough, people have told us that it makes their visit even more enjoyable as they can spend more time viewing the books, rather than having to wait in queues to get served. This time-saving technology is a quick way of issuing, discharging and renewing items yourself, which people may find much more convenient.”
Bedford Borough Council says it is investing in modernising library facilities in a two year ‘Invest to Save’ modernisation project.
The Central Library was completed last year, and work at Kempston Library was completed in July.
