Walk-in welcome every Wednesday from 2-7 pm

Come and get your own library card, borrow the books you want to read or donate to us!
Our library holds a diverse collection of Chinese and English language books related to Chinese culture, art, folklore, history, philosophy, medicine and much more. Our collection is generated from kind donations from local community members and is expanding. We encourage community members to borrow books from our library instead of buying new books.
FAQs and Answers:
- How to join the Chinese library?
We offer free library membership to individuals based in Scotland. Joining the library is simple! Visit us during our library opening times to have this set up.
Please bring 2 forms of ID, one with proof of address on it at the first time of borrowing.
For proof of identity, you could use a bank card, student card, driving licence or passport. For proof of address, you could use a council tax letter, letter from GP, lease or tenancy agreement, letter from the bank, utility bill or mobile phone bill. We will not keep any photocopies or images of your personal documents.
Our librarians are GDPR trained to ensure our compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation.
You can borrow 4 books at a time for a period of 4 weeks from our lending collection.
- How do I return and renew books?
Books can be returned during our library opening hours. If you would like to return books outside our library opening hours, please get in touch with us by emailing email@example.com.
We value our library users and hope to maintain a respectful and enriching library experience. Overdue books will not be fined but you will receive successive reminders. Our books are mainly donated and we do not have the budget to replace missing/damaged books. Please support the sharing of community resources and bring your book(s) back on time.
We deliver different activities regularly in our library. Interested in joining us? Please sign up for our newsletter on our website at www.ricefield.org.uk. We will keep you posted on our upcoming events and the latest news via our monthly eNewsletter.
