Library reopening information

All our Libraries have now reopened. Visit the library directory for information about services available and opening hours.

Some services still must be booked in advance. Please check which services are bookable at your library destination and book a time for your visit if required.

Internal spaces have been adapted to create more space to help reduce the risk of transmission. Whilst the Scottish Government has advised that there is no longer any legal requirement to wear a face covering when accessing libraries, they do continue to encourage the wearing of a face covering when moving around and in communal settings.

Customers over the age of 12 will need to book a slot online or by phoning one of the open branches to:

•  use a public computer

•  book a study space (except at Central Library where space is allocated on a drop-in basis)

•  apply for a National Entitlement Card (bus pass)


Book your visit online 


No need to book to:

•  browse and borrow books

•  join the library

•  return your books

•  pick up Hey Girls sanitary products

•  collect hearing aid batteries

We appreciate your support and look forward to welcoming you back.
