Library Closures from the 1st April 2016

Coylton, Dailly and Dundonald libraries will close for good at the end of business on Thursday 31 March 2016.

The three libraries were approved for closure as part of the budget agreed by Councillors on 3 March, saving £47,263 over the next two years.

Once the three libraries close, alternative provision will be available from our 11 remaining libraries. This will be complemented by the mobile library, which will be rescheduled to include stops in the three villages.

The mobile library service will be available in the three locations every two weeks. Both the times and locations will be kept under review in line with community feedback.

The initial schedule, following the library closures, will be:

Coylton:  Wednesday 6 April and Wednesday 20 April

1pm: Arthurston Terrace
2.30pm: Activity Centre, Hole Road

Dailly: Friday 1 April

10am: Main Street
10.30am: Dailly Primary School
11.30am: Co-op store

Dailly: Tuesday 12 April

10.30am: Main Street
10.30am: Dailly Primary School
11.30am: Co-op store

Dundonald: Wednesday 13 April and Wednesday 27 April

1pm-3.30pm: Montgomerie Hall, Main Street

The nearest alternative libraries for local people are

  • Coylton – Carnegie Library and Forehill Library
  • Dailly – Girvan Library and Maybole Library
  • Dundonald – Symington Library and Troon Library.

Library members can also manage their library account online where they can request, renew and view their library loans, and make use of fantastic resources such as downloadable ebooks and innovative mobile app.

We know local people and communities will be disappointed and we do sympathise with you and thank you for your custom over the years. However, this action has been necessary to help the Council balance its budget and we hope you understand this and make full use of the alternative services available.
