Library information and resources 

Our libraries supply information and resources on the following.

Community Grief Hub at Kilwinning Library

Cruse is working with the Co-op to bring grief resources, drop-in support sessions and Compassionate Communities workshops to your hub. We’re offering free community support to those who are grieving, and new skills to those who want to understand how to better support someone following a bereavement. We’re running a weekly drop in every Friday from 12.30pm to 2.30pm, where Cruse staff will be able to share a cup of tea and signpost you to new support within your community.

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.

Check out our Near Me film below:

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.
