Our Libraries

With seven libraries, mobile libraries and online access, we can deliver information to you wherever you are. Our libraries have well stocked, up-to-date book collections and e-resources including e-books, e-audiobooks and e-magazines. Our libraries are a great source of tourist information and we're proud to be part of iKNOW and a VisitScotland information partner, sharing the local amenities and attractions of Angus. We also provide a convenient public access to council services.
