Libraries

Our local libraries are open and we offer a mobile library service but if you can't visit in person, don't forget you can also access thousands of free eBooks and audiobooks from BorrowBox and eMagazines on the Libby app.  Download the app from the App Strore or Google Play. We've just added a whole range of new ebooks and audiobooks so there are even more titles and authors to discover.

Alternatively, Borrowbox and Libby can be accessed from your PC or laptop via our online catalogue - just sign in using your membership number. If you're not currently a library member, but would like to use this free service, drop into your local library for more information and to get signed up. 

We have set up with Sensory Impaired Support Group to provide batteries for hearing aid users. Batteries are available to be collected in the following libraries on demand:

Dick Institute
Auchinleck
