Coworking business hub opens at Central Library

The Scottish Coworking Network is a new network of business hubs within Scotland’s public libraries, with Edinburgh Central Library being one of the first to join the network. The hubs offer dedicated, business-focused space for aspiring entrepreneurs, sole traders, start-ups and small businesses to work, meet, collaborate and grow.

The space in Central Library has 15 fixed desks and 15 hot desks to choose from. The space also offers a breakout area equipped with comfy sofas, coffee table so you can relax and unwind, or chat and collaborate with other hub members.

The hub offers free wifi and printing facilities and is equipped with basic catering facilities.

Exclusive business workshops, seminars and networking events will be held at Central Library throughout the year.

When you sign up for hot desk or fixed desk membership, you become a member of the Scottish Coworking Network, giving you free access to desk space at hub locations throughout Scotland’s public libraries.

Dedicated, unlimited access to the hub network is available for £35 (+VAT) per month for a hot desk and £50 (+VAT) per month for a fixed desk.

Opening Times:
Mon, Tues & Wed 10am – 8pm
Thu, Fri & Sat 10am – 5pm
