Forehill Library at 31-33 Mt Oliphant Crescent is a hive of activity! Your local library is an ideal place to spend some time and is open to all ages 0-100! Why not check it out and try something new?

There are board games and jigsaws, a knit and natter group, a colouring book station and as colouring books are increasingly found to be a good source of therapy and relaxation- adults are catered for here too!

You can make use of the computers within the library, or you can take your own laptop and share the FREE wi-fi.

Good Morning Service - Free of charge for those aged 60+ years living in South Ayrshire


The charity provides telephone befriending and alert calls to older people. Every morning, 365 days a year, Telephone Befrienders call out to members at a pre-arranged time to check that all is well and for a good blether. We take an active interest in people and over time hope to become a “good friend on the phone”, someone to share a laugh with or simply be there to listen and give emotional support in difficult times.
