It will be one of seven main libraries across the borough that will allow library users to check their own books in and out.
They are also being placed in Walsall Central Library, Aldridge, Bloxwich, Brownhills, Darlaston and Willenhall.
D-Tech International Ltd has been awarded the contract to install 17 self-service terminals as part of the £232,800 Radio Frequency Identification Systems(RFID) project funded through the council’s capital programme.
Tags are being placed on 200,000 books ahead of the installation of the terminals.
Together with issuing and discharging books the scanners will be able to check out other items available for hire, renew items, take payments and list reservations. Customers will receive a receipt detailing any payments they have made and the return date.
Councillor Anthony Harris, Walsall Council cabinet member for leisure and culture, said: “It is important to stress this is not about replacing staff with self service technology but about listening to our customers.
“The terminals will release staff from behind the counters to spend more time with customers answering their enquiries, offering more in-depth help and support and running courses/groups.
“RFID will also make our service more efficient by reducing the queues of people waiting to check items in and out and enable staff to locate exactly where items are on the shelves.”
