Embodying the public library ethos in Craigmillar Library

Library services are based on a number of underpinning principles, which have driven public library development and shaped the trusted role they play in society.  Our ethos is rooted in education for workers, equality of access to resources and information and the right to participate in democratic society.

We are also about sharing and sustainability, sharing content and spaces. Embodying all of this is  Craigmillar’s brand new library which opened its doors to the public  on Monday 26 November.

The fabulous, purpose-built library replaces the old and unfit building that was no longer fit for purpose. The new community space supports the ongoing regeneration of Craigmillar and is a key focal point of the new town centre.

Bustling with customers, families and children it is a wonderful addition to the community of Craigmillar
