“With the cost of living crisis impacting the finances of so many, we recognize that another cost, however small, is the last thing anyone needs.

“So if you have books gathering dust on your shelf, why not return them and start borrowing again?

“Our libraries are fantastic places to borrow books, learn, or just relax and enjoy the surroundings.”

Those who live, work or study in South Lanarkshire can use the 23 libraries which all have free Wi-Fi access and a home delivery service.
