We work and liaise with other local organisations to ensure we give good value services.
SIC adult learning run a range of community learning including literacy and evening classes, and work in partnership with the Library. You can browse for learning opportunities on the above website. Our Partnership Statement published on our Performance web page details how we work together.
Shetland College and NAFC Scalloway libraries are part of UHI (University of the Highlands and Islands) rather than Shetland Library, but the public can use some of their services. Phone ahead to check as opening times can vary according to student needs. Shetland college also operates rural Learning Centres: details are on their website.
