Community facilities update

Some community buildings are temporarily closed or seeing reduced operation due to an ongoing shortage of essential staff.

Our offices - John Muir House and Brunton Hall

Customer Services at John Muir House are open from 9am to 1pm and 2pm to 5pm Monday to Thursday and on a Friday 9am to 1pm and 2pm to 4pm. The payments desk closes 30 minutes prior to closing.

Brunton Hall is open 9am to 5pm. The payments desk closes 30 minutes prior to closing.

Key points:

  • access is through the main door only
  • anyone coming into these buildings will be asked for their name and contact details under the Test and Protect system - and should wear a face covering

Most people will have a pre-booked appointment. If you don't have an appointment - and you need to speak to someone urgently - you will be seen but might have to wait. 


See current opening hours and services from our East Lothian libraries directory.

Our Home Library Service is for anyone who is elderly or who needs to stay inside for health reasons.  If you are aware of anyone who has no-one to collect books for them through the click and collect system - we can have books delivered to them.  Email identifying who the person is who needs assistance with contact details for them.”
