Lately I’ve been hearing a lot about the essential role that public libraries are playing in the regeneration of Scotland’s communities. An example of this is happening right now in Craigmillar
in Edinburgh where work has just begun on the development of a new neighbourhood and library centre. Replacing a number of tired and old buildings this cutting edge facility will be a hub for the local community; housing a number of council services, partner agencies and of course a library service that’s responsive to the needs and expectations of 21st century users. Exciting times for the residents of Craigmillar!
Take a quick peek at the 3D walkthrough of the new centre. Impressive stuff. Can’t wait to visit when it opens in 2013!
