About the library
Inverness Public Library was built as a school, Bell’s Institution in 1841. It ceased to be a school in 1937 and functioned as a courthouse, police station and theatre before becoming a public library in 1980. Customers have access to the lending library and reference room. Regular activities, exhibitions and author visits.
Look out for up coming activities on the library notice boards and Inverness Library Facebook page.
Due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions all face-to-face Bookbug Sessions are currently cancelled. Families can enjoy free live online Bookbug Sessions on our Facebook pages. Please check your local library Facebook for details of online Bookbug Sessions.
