West Calder Library

West Calder library information

Open book
Following confirmation by the Scottish Government of the lifting restrictions such as physical distancing and household numbers, changes are being made to the service currently provided from 23 August 2021.

Library customers will be able to access their favourite books faster, with the 72-hour quarantine for returned materials no longer required.

Click & Collect will remain. Customers will continue to reserve their items from the library catalogue and will be contacted when they are available to collect from a designated collection point in the library, then check out the items, either at the self-service kiosk or library reception, at any time during library opening hours.

To ensure the safety of staff and customers, visitor numbers will remain limited based on the capacity at each library; queues may be experienced during busy periods.

Face coverings will still be required unless you are exempt, and Test and Protect procedures through Check in Scotland will still be in place.

All visitors will also be encouraged to maintain good hand hygiene with washing and sanitising facilities available in every venue, with a one-way system in place and windows and doors open where possible to increase ventilation.

Customers will be encouraged to wipe down touch points before and after use on machines such as self-check machines, PCs and photocopiers, with use of self-check machines promoted to reduce contact with staff.

Photocopying and printing services are available in the library. Prices are displayed on the following document: Icon for pdf Library service charges [89.67KB]  Please note we are unable to accept card payments.

Our staff will be on hand for assistance if required and if physical distancing can be maintained.
