East Ayrshire Leisure’s mobile library is hitting the road once again, bringing books to the masses.

The mobile library returned on a “Reserve and Collect” basis on Monday.

Borrowers will need to book in advance to use the service.

The dates at which it will be appearing in each neighbourhood across East Ayrshire are listed on the East Ayrshire Leisure website, under the Libraries category here.

You can now contact the Dick Institute on 01563 554320 to book a slot when it’s in your location.

Phone lines are open Monday - Friday from 10am - 4pm. You can reserve stock from an online catalogue before telephoning to book a time slot.

If you can’t decide, you can ask the Libraries team to make a selection for you.

Staff at the mobile library advise that you will need to book your time slot six days in advance to allow time to process requests and for books to be quarantined after handling for the safety of customers and staff.

Libraries are now allowed to operate outdoors on an appointment basis and East Ayrshire Leisure say all guidelines are being followed.
