There are no plans to cease library services in the town despite rumours which have been circulating in the town.

There has been growing speculation in recent days, that the library, located in the Brander Building in The Square, but currently shut due to Covid-19, could be closed for good

The service is run by Live Life Aberdeenshire and a spokesman told The Huntly Express: "At this time there is no decision to close the Brander Library permanently or otherwise stop library service provision in Huntly.

"In fact we’re looking at how we re-introduce services safely to best meet the needs of the community.

"Even prior to Covid-19 Live Life Aberdeenshire was reviewing library services with a view to the future, and we will continue to look at better ways to meet the needs of our community and improve access to services.

"There may be changes to the way library services operate in future, but there is a future for library provision in Huntly, starting with the anticipated roll-out of Click and Collect and home delivery services which have proved a safe and popular way of accessing library services during lockdown elsewhere in Aberdeenshire.

"We expect to announce a start date for these services shortly."

It is understood that the click and collect service will become available from the Brander in December.
