In response to the latest government advice on the coronavirus, Aberdeen City Libraries has taken the difficult decision to close all our libraries as of 5pm on Friday 20 March.
The wellbeing of our visitors and staff is our number one priority and this decision has been taken to prevent further spread of the virus; protect employee and public health; and to ensure we can continue to deliver public services, especially to those who need us most.
As a result, we are implementing changes to the way we currently deliver our public library service and below is information on how those changes will affect our library users.
The situation is constantly evolving and we will be updating this page with more information as and when we have it, in accordance with the latest government advice.
If you have any questions which are not answered here, please email CentralLibrary@aberdeencity.gov.uk
Over the last few weeks, Aberdeen City Libraries has focused on increasing the number of digital resources available to library users. These include RB Digital UK for eAudiobooks and eComics; hundreds of new titles available on BorrowBox; and exclusive remote home access to Ancestry UK.
We have also started online Bookbug sessions on our Youtube channel for families who usually attend our weekly events at their local library.
