Bookbug Sessions

Library services for people living, working and studying in North Lanarkshire.

Bookbug North Lanarkshire

In-person Bookbug Sessions

Some of our in-person Bookbug sessions are returning. There will be some changes to how the sessions are organised and delivered. To allow for social distancing, the number of adults attending sessions will be capped and we do have a booking system in operation.

Sessions can be booked by contacting the library by phone or in-person from the Thursday, 1pm prior to the session (or the next time the library is open following this time). To find out more about the changes that will be in place, visit our Bookbug FAQs.
