Page updated 29 March.
Following advice from the UK and Scottish governments on limiting social contact, we have closed all our buildings to the public — George IV Bridge and Causewayside in Edinburgh, and the National Library at Kelvin Hall in Glasgow — until further notice.
We hope this will contribute to the effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
This means we have also cancelled all events planned to take place in Library buildings for the foreseeable future. However, we are running some online events — you can find details on our events pages.
As our Reading Rooms are closed, Library members are now unable to order physical items from Library Search.
However, we encourage you to explore the wealth of digital resources available for research, learning, entertainment or creative reuse.
We have also extended our Library Chat service hours to 10.00-16.00, Monday to Friday. Our librarians are still here to help.
幸运飞艇前一婆什么意思We will continue to monitor Government advice, and when the situation improves, we will provide updates on our website and associated social media channels.
