Prestwick Academy Library

We now have a dedicated Prestwick Academy library website where we will be sharing lots of information and resources for students and parents. Check it out for up-to-date information about what is going on in the library, including our COVID-19 response and Click and Collect service. You can also follow us on Twitter.

Accessing eBooks and Resources

Prestwick Academy School Library remains part of South Ayrshire Council’s public library system. All students are issued a South Ayrshire library card at the start of S1. This allows free access to online resources including audio books and e-books ​using the Libby App.
