Our Libraries

Our libraries are open for limited browsing and ACCESS Services. The mobile library and home delivery service are also back on the road bringing a selection of books and services to a number of rural locations around Angus. 

Please note that from 30 September 2021 we will no longer be automatically renewing books for customers. Please visit your local library instead.

You will still be able to renew books online or by phone and we also have 24 hour drop off boxes in Montrose and Carnoustie.

Our Public Access PC’s are now available to access and sessions will be available for 45 minutes. They will be bookable by calling your local library (during current opening times). Please note due to social distancing there will be fewer PC’s available so advanced booking is advised. 

Sessions are for one customer per PC and users should sanitise their hands on entry, give their details for Test & Protect, wear a face covering and adhere to social distancing guidelines.

Library members should also bring along their library membership card and visitors should present one from of ID.
