Edinburgh Libraries has announced the first phase of opening will see a selection of library buildings across the city reopening on Tuesday 13 October.
The 6 libraries are Central, Kirkliston, McDonald Road, Fountainbridge, Stockbridge and Newington.
We envisage that, initially at least, services will be limited to browsing and borrowing, returning items, free access to computers, internet and WiFi, support with National Entitlement card online applications, Hey Girls free sanitary provision, hearing aid batteries, printing and photocopying.
As you might expect, numbers within buildings will be limited, social distancing measures will be in place and some services will only be available by booking in advance.Further information will be advertised in the coming weeks.We appreciate your support and look forward to welcoming you back!
