His blend of devious plots, wicked humour and familiar Scottish locations has firmly established him as one of the leading proponents of Tartan Noir.

If you are keen to join, please contact Barbara Malcolm on email@example.com.
How to Join the library
Joining the library is FREE!
Come down to the Library and sign up for your FREE library ticket. Our friendly volunteers will be more than happy to show you where everything is and how it all works.
Please note that we are no longer a part of the Clackmannanshire Council Library Service! You can of course be a member of both our Community Library and the Council’s Library service but our books and tickets are not interchangeable with theirs.
Our Children’s Library:
Our welcoming children’s library is colourful and cozy and a great place to develop a passion for reading. We have managed to add activities such as story time and colouring sessions to add to the fun.
The Development Trust was one of the Dollar Co-op’s supported causes for 2018 and we were grateful to have been able to use some of that funding for our initial start-up costs.
Many people have generously offered to donate books. We are happy to take most books, as long as they are in good condition. If your unwanted books are not in good condition please take them straight to the charity shop. If you are unsure about what you can donate please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

About the Dollar Community Library
Our new Library is staffed and run entirely by a team of local volunteers. We believe that the Library is a vital resource for members of the Dollar Community young and old.
Our key aims are:
- To provide a thriving community library in Dollar which is used and valued by the community
- To encourage children to develop a love of reading and to support literacy
- To increase social inclusion in our older population by making the library welcoming and accessible, building other events and activities around it
Clackmannanshire Council has donated us a stock of around 4000 books to start us off (See resources section below). Where we go from here is up to us as a community!
We would love to hear from you about what kind of books you would like to see on our shelves and any recommendations for really good reads you feel other people would enjoy. Look out for suggestion sheets around the Library or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
A big thanks to Mia for these lovely posters. There are colouring pens and paper in the children’s library and we would love to see more children have a go at designing more!
