COVID-19 - update on your library service

EDLC Libraries are continuing the phased return of services and any updates will be posted on this page.

Browsing and Borrowing

Browsing is now available at a limited number of our libraries. Please see the table below for browsing locations, days and times. You do not need to make an appointment to browse, however you may be asked to wait until another customer leaves if our buildings reach maximum capacity.  Please come alone wherever possible and, to avoid unnecessary social contact, try to restrict your browsing time to a maximum of 30 minutes. Our Connect and Collect service will be continuing for those not wishing to browse at this time.

Computer Access

Computer access has returned to EDLC Libraries. Please visit our Computers & Technology page for more information and to book a computer.

Home Library Service

Our Home Library Service has now resumed. Working alongside East Dunbartonshire Voluntary Action, EDVA, and Soroptimist International of Kirkintilloch, EDLC staff will offer this service to care facilities and also library members who are unable to travel to their local library due to physical or health conditions.  

The health and safety of our customers and staff is of primary importance and we will only begin to reinstate services when it is safe to do so. Throughout the lockdown period, staff have been engaging with national bodies and participating in webinars with colleagues across the UK, in order to share information for the planning of a re-introduction of services. Importantly, our recovery planning is based on the Scottish Government and Public Health Scotland advice and guidance.
