Blackness Library - an update

Many residents have asked me when Leisure & Culture Dundee aims to reopen Blackness Library.

Last Friday, it was announced that the Central Library will reopen on Monday 26th April with.reduced opening hours (Monday, Thursday, Friday 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 5pm; Tuesday 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 6pm and Wednesday and Saturday 10am to 1pm).

It will be open for lower floor departments only - returns, browsing and borrowing, limited PC access. Reconnect and Collect will also be available.

I have asked the Director of Leisure & Culture Dundee the position regarding Blackness Library and she has advised as follows :

"As with previous reopening plans, Leisure & Culture Dundee is working closely with Dundee City Council to ensure a co-ordinated approach to service resumption.

These plans are still being finalised and in terms of libraries will take place on a phased basis initially with reduced hours. I will let you know the date for Blackness Library as soon as I have confirmation."

I will, of course, continue to keep residents updated.
