Changes in Libraries beyond Level 0

Since May this year we have reopened most of our libraries, and we are now in the process of developing the full opening of libraries in line with the Scottish Government route map which allows for this from 9th August, with reduced restrictions.

Infection rates in Edinburgh are still high, so we must continue to take a cautious approach to returning to workplaces and restarting the services we had to suspend or reduce as part of our response to the pandemic. The health and safety of citizens and staff is our main priority, and we work closely with council colleagues to ensure this.

We are currently looking at the requirements to allow each library to resume full opening hours and range of services.  Our intention is to have communications regarding resumption of full library services soon.  Until then we need to adhere to the booking system and current restrictions within our libraries.

Please be assured that much work is continuing in the background, to plan for full opening of libraries.

Thank you for your continued understanding and support. Your Library is always open online to borrow eBooks, audiobooks, magazines and newspapers.
