Browsing for Books is Back!

We are now able to offer customers the opportunity to browse the bookshelves at selected libraries across Aberdeenshire. Please be aware there is a limit to the number of customers allowed in the building at one time so you may be asked to wait if we have reached our capacity. 

At the library

In line with government guidance you must wear a face covering or have a legitimate reason for not wearing a mask. 

Please use the sanitiser stations as you enter the library and check in via Test and Protect. We do ask that you keep the handling of the books to a minimum where possible and sanitise your hands while moving between the shelves. You will now also be able to sit, read and study as well and use the Public Access PC's and photocopier.
