Coming soon: a brand new library for Edinburgh!

Very exciting news: the new Drumbrae Library Hub opens its doors at 10am on Tuesday 31 January.

The Hub brings together lots of services under one roof: a new library for the area, access to Council services and the Police Safer Neighbourhood Team, a cafe area, community meetings rooms and a day care centre.  We have been working with the community to make sure the building really reflects the hopes and aspirations of local people.  So please come along and see it for yourself.

Here is a taste of what is coming up:
