Customer Service Update - Coronavirus COVID-19


Aberdeen City Libraries are working on the next stage of the reinstatement of library services and this will involve opening the limited number of libraries currently providing the Click and Collect service for browsing and computer access. These libraries are Central Library, Airyhall Library, Bridge Of Don Library, Cove Library, Dyce Library, Mastrick Library and Tillydrone Library.

The libraries will reopen the week beginning Monday 31 August.

Alongside the reintroduction of limited browsing, computer access and research appointments, we will continue to provide our Click and Collect service, Home Library Service and maintain full access to our wide range of digital online resources including eBooks and eNewspapers.

For computer access, to ensure social distancing there will be fewer PCs available at each site, so sessions will be limited to 50 minutes and must be booked in advance online of by phone.

Once the Scottish Government has approved the move into Phase 4 of exiting Lockdown, we will layout our roadmap for the reinstatement of services for the rest of 2020 and moving into 2021.

We appreciate that many of you are looking forward to visiting your local library however we will not be re-introducing a full service until we are confident that we can do so safely. Updates on the next steps towards reopening will be available on this page and our social media channels. 

There are currently no fines on items so please hold onto your books until you are ready to use the click and collect service or until libraries re-open. 

If you have any questions which are not answered here, please email or call 01224 652500.
