125 years of Edinburgh Libraries


“We trust that this Library is to grow in usefulness year after year, and prove one of the most potent agencies for the good of the people for all time to come” – Andrew Carnegie, Edinburgh, 1890.

This year sees the 125th anniversary of Edinburgh’s public library service, and we’re celebrating by looking forward as well as back.

Book now for Future Libraries – the next 125 years  – a panel discussion with National Librarian John Scally, the Scottish Book Trust’s Philippa Cochrane, Professor Hazel Hall of Napier University and Duncan Wright, Librarian at Stewart’s Melville College.

Look out too, for more posts over the next couple of weeks telling the story of Edinburgh’s Libraries. We’ve got some cracking discoveries to share with you.
