Library opening hours

South Ayrshire library service operates 11 branch libraries, a mobile library service and the main library Carnegie which includes specialist reference, local and family history and Cyber Centre services.

We endeavour to provide accessible libraries, including accessible toilets. The only library we cannot accommodate for accessibility is Ballantrae library, due to the small size of this rural branch.

Please note:Following the Scottish Government decision to move South Ayrshire to Tier 4, all South Ayrshire libraries will close from Thursday 24 December at 1pm with the exception of Ballantrae and Tarbolton libraries that will close at 12 noon. Our Connect and Collect service and Mobile Library will also be unavailable. To support our customers, there will be no late fees charged for any borrowed items until further notice. Please keep items at home until branches reopen.

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