Book Week Scotland – Old Aberdeen Library

We are gearing up for Book Week Scotland (15-21 November) and we are celebrating that we don’t have just one Library in The Sir Duncan Rice Library, we have two! Did you know that we have the Old Aberdeen branch of the Aberdeen City Libraries situated in the back right corner of the ground floor?

All those who work, live or study in Aberdeen City or Shire, qualify to become a member of the public library. This gives you access to borrow from their physical collection from any branch using Old Aberdeen Library as your collection point, browse the shelves on the ground floor, borrow audiobooks and electronic books from BorrowBox, their online collection. It also gives to access to all of their online resources such as Ancestry and PressReader.
