October holidays? Not for us! There are lots of spooky goings-on in libraries during the break – so don’t sit about the house all week; get out, get down to your local library and get active!
Here’s a selection of what’s going on – contact your nearest library to find out what activities and events they’ve got planned.
If you’re aged 6 – 11, come and make your own bat on 21st Oct from 2.30 – 3.30
‘Circus Stars’ is our theme for this year’s reading challenge – so there will be lots of clowning about in libraries this summer! Scroll down to see what’s happening at your local library (if it’s not listed give them a call to find out what’s happening, or ask the next time you’re in).
To find out more about the summer reading challenge take a look at this video or head over to the Circus Stars site.
Just a quick reminder that libraries will be closed on Good Friday (22nd April) and Easter Monday (25th April). However, during the Easter weekend, libraries will be open on Saturday 23 April and Sunday 24 April if they are usually open on a Sunday.

Due to essential maintenance, public access PCs are not currently available in our libraries. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and would like to reassure library users that we are working to restore access as quickly as possible.
Just a quick reminder that libraries will close at 5pm on Hogmanay then reopen as normal on Wednesday 5th January.
Happy New Year to all our readers from everyone here at Edinburgh City Libraries!
Libraries Opening Times on Wednesday 8 December, Thursday 9 December and Friday 10 December will be 10am – 5pm.
Where staffing allows, this includes libraries that would normally open from 1pm.
As we’ve been saying - things could change depending on the weather. Our advice remains to phone ahead if you are thinking of visiting a library to make sure it will be open when you get there.
