Midlothian Libraries returning
Lasswade and Newbattle Libraries will be back to their full opening hours from Monday the 23rd May.
All of our branches are now back to their pre-COVID service.
We ask that you still wear a face covering when moving about the library (unless excempt) and to respect other library users personal space.
Don't worry about late fines - there will be no additional fines from 18 March 2020 until further notice.
In other big news we are pleased to say that as well as ALL FINES from first lockdown continuing to be waived, that there will now be NO MORE FINES OR CHARGES for all our Midlothian Library users!
Printing, photocopying and laminating will still carry a charge, but the hire of CDs and DVDs will now be free of charge.
We continue to offer a range of free online services during this period including:
- eMagazines and newspapers
