Review of Library Opening Hours

 In order to ensure that our opening times meet local needs we are reviewing the opening hours of all Community Libraries. The total number of hours open across the city will remain unchanged.  However, due to population changes in certain areas of the city some adjustments will be required to reflect changing demand.

Recommendations will be made to the City Council but before introducing any changes we would like to hear your thoughts on the draft options. Questionnaires are available at all 16 Community Libraries with draft options for revised opening hours. Please take the opportunity to state your preference and add any additional comments about opening hours at your local library. The consultation ends on Wednesday 20 August.

Get into the Commonwealth Spirit this Summer with Aberdeen City Libraries

 Together with libraries across Scotland, we're taking part in the national summer reading promotion 'A Wealth of Reading' designed to celebrate titles by Wealth of Reading Logo Commonwealth writers and books set in and around the Commonwealth.

Visit any of our libraries across the city between July and September, select one or more books from our Wealth of Reading Commonwealth Collections and enter the national competition to be in with a chance of winning a brand new tablet (the computer, not the delicious Scottish sweet delicacy!).

Taking part is simple: Describe the best things about the book(s) you've read in no more than 50 words and you could be a winner. Enter online at the Wealth of Reading website or fill out a review card from your local library before the competition closes on Tuesday 30th September to be in with a chance of winning.

If you're looking for ideas on what to read then check out our Commonwealth must-reads for inspiration!
