This page collects together the Library’s information regarding COVID-19 and our services during the pandemic.
UPDATED AS OF 27/7/2021.
Following Scottish Government guidelines, we are pleased to inform you that the library has re-opened. Our working hours are Monday-Friday, 10am-2pm. While we will still need to control the number of people in the library, we have spaces available for independent work and study. Please wear a face-covering.
Our Click and Collect service and our free postal borrowing offer will remain available until further notice.
If you have any questions about any of the following, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
The Scottish Poetry Library is staffed weekdays from 10am – 2pm. In addition to welcoming visitors back into the building, we’re offering:
- Free postal loans with extended borrowing periods.
- A ‘click and collect’ service; consult our catalogue to see if we have the book you want and then email our reception to secure the book; you can then come down to the Library and pick up the books.
We’ll monitor the situation on a weekly basis and respond to the Scottish Government guidance when necessary.
