The Scottish Library and Information Council (SLIC) is encouraging households to use online library services during strict social distancing rules.
Pamela Tulloch, chief executive at SLIC, said: “Closing the doors to public libraries is counter-intuitive to everything they stand for.
"Fortunately, modern technology means libraries remain accessible, and librarians across Scotland are working hard to keep in touch with communities during this challenging period.
"Services are increasing the volume of free e-books and e-audiobooks and removing fines for outstanding loans.
"There are some great examples of innovation too, such as virtual book groups and online storytelling sessions."
High Life Highland, which looks after libraries across the region, is continiung to offer online access torange of materials and servoces.
