Latest update on COVID-19

Reserve and Collect service restarting

From Monday the 15th of March; Dalkeith, Newtongrange and Penicuik Libraries are reopening to deliver the Reserve and Collect service only. The Mobile Library will also restart at this time for this service only.

This means that the public will still not have access to library buildings or facilities, but can arrange to collect and drop off library items by using the Reserve and Collect service.

To make an enquiry please either book via the web form or contact the branch library by phone or email.


If you are at home and are shielding then we have a home delivery service that can help. Otherwise we still have an ever growing eBook and eAudiobook collection that is free to access for all of our customers.


If you are currently shielding at home, we are able to offer a home delivery service with the help of the Red Cross. Please email with any questions, or contact staff at Penicuik Library with your information. Either phone the library 01968 664 050 or email


Any questions please get in touch, either email, or phone the contact centre 0131 270 7500
