Libraries & Archives
Missed your library? Good news - Libraries are on their way back!
Not that we've really been gone during lockdown - we've been busy providing great content online and keeping in touch with customers - but we're now on the way to getting back into our buildings and re-opening our doors.
The Home Delivery service for housebound library members resumed this week but the big step is Connect & Collect, which starts on Wednesday, 15 July, and will allow library members to return books and pick up a bag of books selected for them by library staff based on their preferences.

And we are delighted that right from the outset we will be reopening 24 libraries with a limited service, which represents three-quarters of our branches. The branches and their contact numbers are listed in the below table.
The safety of customers and staff is our priority which is why the re-opening process is being done over a short transition period. We are working fully in line with Scottish Government guidance and the pace allows us to welcome you back into branches gradually in a way that is safe and you will be confident about using. We will be reviewing the process over the coming weeks and keeping you up to date with progress through our website and social media so keep checking back.
The next stage of re-opening, when you will be able to enter the buildings for limited browsing and to use PCs, is expected to be on the w/b 3 August and then full public access, but with a limited service, will commence from w/b 7 September. However, these dates are subject to change depending on guidance at those times and it is expected that some restrictions and protective measures will still be required.
From 15 July you can call the below library branches for the Connect & Collect service:
