You may have seen the newspaper reports about the redevelopment of Central Library, which we are naturally very excited about.
A new Central Library for Edinburgh would be an iconic landmark, and a testament to the role Edinburgh will play in the 21st century as a truly “intelligent” and global capital city.
New thinking, new services, new designs and new partnerships will support the creation of a unique service which will bring people together, nurture creativity, allow far greater access to Edinburgh’s cultural and literary heritage, and act as a focal hub within the city.
This project will deliver completely refurbished library facilities within the existing George Washington Browne building as well as a new quality hotel development with restaurant and retail facilities.
