Library information and resources 

Our libraries supply information and resources on the following.

Near Me space at Kilwinning Library

Near Me is a video calling service used by many health and public services. 

However, not everyone who is offered a Near Me appointment will have the data available, Wi-Fi connection or IT equipment/smartphone to be able to take advantage of the service. In addition, they may not have a private place from where they can make the call, or they could be unsure of how it works.

Kilwinning Library now has a dedicated Near Me space, equipped with the necessary IT equipment and offering complete privacy to make your call and can either be booked by services or service users. Library staff can also provide assistance for anyone who is unsure how it works.

For more information, or to book the Near Me space, call the library on 01294 554699 or contact kilwinninglibrary@north-ayrshire.gov.uk during opening hours.
