Libraries, Museums and Galleries

Following the recent Government advice regarding Covid-19 (Coronavirus), the Council has taken the decision to close all South Ayrshire Libraries, Rozelle House and The Maclaurin Art Gallery, the McKechnie Institute and the Grain Exchange from 12 noon on Wednesday 18 March.

To support our customers, there will be no late fees charged for any borrowed items until further notice; customers are asked to keep items at home until branches reopen. New online registrations will now have a 3 month temporary membership to avoid the requirement to bring ID into a branch.

Customers can still access our free e-reader offer of newspapers, books and magazines as normal.

We have received a high volume of online registrations and would like to reassure anyone who has recently joined online, that we are working hard to get Library Card Numbers and PIN codes emailed out to you as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.‚Äč
