Find out about the fastback service

Fastbacks is a quick return book service, offering extra copies of the very latest bestsellers and top titles in one easy-to-find off-the-shelf collection.

Fastbacks are a great way to enjoy the latest best sellers that you want, when you want them.

Where fastbacks are available

  • Central Library
  • Highworth Library
  • North Swindon Library
  • West Swindon Library

Look out for the distinctive purple display stand. You can only borrow Fastbacks for one week, but if you need them longer, simply return them and ask for another loan.

Returning fastbacks

You can return a Fastback book to any Borough of Swindon library. In order to make the books available to as many people as possible, as often as possible, you will not be able to reserve a Fastback title. But because there are multiple copies, you should never be disappointed when you look for the title you want.
