Scott Simpson, from East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure said: "Our staff have been working hard behind the scenes to get ready, while offering selected services, as part of our reopening plans.

"Clarkston Library has benefited from refurbishment and users will see improved lighting and layouts, upgraded computers and more new books to enjoy. There is also better space for children's events and activities, which we hope to be running again soon.”

Customers are urged to book a one-hour slot for book browsing and PC sessions in advance. For more information visit
