Aberdeen City Libraries are pleased to announce the winners of the Scottish Childrens Book Awards 2013 competition.

Information Centre Temporary Closure
The Information Centre in Central Library will be closed from Monday 3 March 2014 for two weeks while refurbishment works are underway.
The aim of the works is to improve the space as a learning environment with new dedicated areas for some of our services. Included in the changes will be:
- An increase in the number of quiet study spaces available
- A dedicated Local Studies area with space to safely consult fragile items
- A new meeting area for tutorials or small group study
- A more prominent exhibition and display space
For the duration of the works, many services and resources currently located in the Information Centre, including all current newspapers, limited periodicals and a reduced local studies service, will be moved to the Adult Lending Department in Central Library (the floor directly below the Information Centre). Photocopiers and PCs are located throughout the building.
The newly refurbished Information Centre is scheduled to re-open on Monday 17 March 2014. We apologise for any inconvenience during the refurbishment and hope that you will enjoy using the new Information Centre when the works are completed.
