Libraries are back!

Libraries are back, come on in!

We’re thrilled to be able to welcome you back. 

Regular opening times have resumed, including evening and weekend hours and we’re carefully resuming library activities.

If you’ve been in to see us, tell us about your experience by emailing libraries@falkirkcommunitytrust.org or by tagging us on social media with #librariesareback. We love to see photos of your visit. We’re on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Not been in yet? Here’s what to expect.

You don’t need an appointment to borrow items, just come on in. We ask you to wear a face covering, if you can, use the hand sanitiser provided and complete a short form for contact tracing. We encourage everyone to regularly use Lateral Flow Tests.

Here’s what you can do at the library:

Borrow books and DVDs: our regular loan period have resumed (4 weeks for books/audiobooks, 1 week for DVDs, 2 weeks for books with waiting lists)

Use library PCs: You can book a library PC in advance to avoid disappointment.

Print and photocopy: Staff can photocopy in A3 and A4 for you. You can also log onto our PCs to print. 

Attend library events: We’re getting back to activities carefully and have hosted Bookbug sessions, crafts and reading groups. Visit our Groups and events page for more information.

Study: We have reduced the number of tables/seats available so that everyone can spread out and give each other space.

Return your books: Overdue charges resumed on 4th October, but you won’t have accrued fees for items while we were closed during lockdowns. More information can be found below.

Sort out your bus pass: Make an appointment to sort out your bus pass at Falkirk Library by calling 01324 503605.

Return your lockdown loans

Do you still have library books, audiobooks or DVDs at home from before lockdown in March 2020? You can return your items at any library in the area, regardless of where you borrowed them from. We understand that it hasn’t been easy for many people to get into see us. 

Please be aware that, while overdue fees were turned off during our closure, these once again begun to accrue on October 4th 2021. Please speak to a friendly member of staff about any problems with returns or charges.
