Library staff are now available to issue and return books for you at most of our library sites (check staffed hours before you visit). Books can also be requested via Library Search from other staffed NHS Scotland libraries, and can be collected from our staffed NHSGGC library sites. To save you a visit, Library staff will be happy to post books from our own NHSGGC stock by internal mail to NHSGGC workplaces, and you can return items the same way.
Borrowing and returning books in unstaffed libraries
Many NHSGGC libraries that are accessible out of hours have self-issue sheets or issue cards that you can use to record any books you borrow when our sites are unstaffed. Please continue to use these, ensuring you give barcode details of the items if requested. You can find book barcodes inside the first couple of pages, near the date label. Most of our sites have Book Return bins as well: please use these to place your returns in, rather than leave them on enquiry desks.
Contact any of our staffed sites or email email@example.com if you need help with requesting books.
