Ballater Library

Welcome to Ballater Library
Ballater Library has moved from its former location within the Victoria & Albert Halls to the rebuilt Royal Station just across the road. This has been a three year, multi million pound build and the Library now sits alongside Visit Scotland and the Princes Foundation.

The Library is staffed Tuesdays and Wednesdays 10am – 3pm, and Thursdays 12noon  – 5pm.  The Library can be accessed at any time during the VisitScotland open hours of 9.30am – 5pm Monday – Sunday (10am – 5pm winter hours).

You can browse, borrow, and return books outwith staffed hours using our self-issue machine or the Spydus library app on a smartphone. Customers can also contact the helpline for assistance on 01467 532929 (9am till 5pm, Monday to Friday and 9am till 2pm Saturdays) or by email:
