This week Mearns Community Campus in Laurencekirk has extended the opening hours of the library.
On Monday, the opening hours increased to 40 per week.
The library will now be open between 4pm and 8pm on Mondays and Wednesdays. The new library has been very popular with over 74,000 visitors already through the doors. Feedback from the community and the introduction of the new TellyTalk Service point highlighted the need for the extension of the library’s opening hours.
TellyTalk is an interactive video conferencing system in the library which allows people to speak to an Aberdeenshire Council customer service advisor face-to-face without having to travel to a council office in a neighbouring town.
Regular events are planned throughout the year and to find out what’s on call 01561 377298 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
