We are delighted to announce that we’re starting to bounceback and Nairn Library will re-open on the 23rd of July 2020 for “Collect and Return.”


The safety and wellbeing of our staff and customers is very important. We’re reintroducing library services gradually, following public health advice. We know that one of the joys of libraries is being able to browse our shelves, however we must put your safety first which means that we are only able to offer ‘Collect and Return’ at present to ensure that items have been properly quarantined and sanitised.

‘Collect and Return’ will run from selected libraries whilst we prepare our other libraries for reopening. To use Collect and Return:

  1. Phone or e-mail one of the listed libraries to request specific titles or ask staff to choose a selection of items based on your interests
  2. Staff will then contact you to arrange a date and time for you to come and collect your items, and return any you have at home

Please note that we are currently unable to transfer stock between libraries, so the item/s must be in stock at the library you want to collect it/ them from. You can view our online catalogue here: https://hlh.spydus.co.uk/cgi-bin/spydus.exe/MSGTRN/WPAC/HOME

You don’t need to make a special trip to return your items if you aren’t collecting others at the same time, as we’re renewing all loans automatically.

To use Collect and Return, please contact one of the libraries listed below. Please do not phone or e-mail before the date listed beside each library. If your local library is not listed, it remains closed at this time and information on opening dates will be issued as it becomes available.
