COVID-19 - update on your library service

EDLC Libraries Connect and Collect Service planned to resume from Monday 26 April

Our Connect and Collect webpage will be live from 26 April, allowing library members to once again select books for collection from our controlled collection points, where strict safety measures are in place. Library members can now also place holds on specific items through our online catalogue or our Libraries App.

If you had an existing order that was awaiting collection when the service was suspended last November, a library staff member will be in touch from 20 April to organise a new collection time.

If you have books on loan, our book return bins are also planned to be available at selected branches from 26 April at the below times:

Bishopbriggs Library: Monday 10am-5pm, Tuesday and Wednesday 10am-6pm

Lennoxtown Library: Friday 10am-5pm

Milngavie Library: Monday 10am-5pm, Wednesday 10am-6pm, Friday 10am-5pm

William Patrick Library: Monday 10am-5pm, Tuesday and Thursday 10am-6pm

We are working towards controlled computer and printing access and further updates will be provided on this page and social media. Planning is also underway to resume our Home Library delivery service and limited browsing by appointment, depending on any change in national safety recommendations.

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.
