From There… To Here

The social history of Wester Hailes

Happy Birthday Wester Hailes Library!

The Wester Hailes Library celebrated it’s fifteenth birthday yesterday and you can see photos of the celebration and the Knit And Natter Group that meets there regularly on the South West Neighbourhood page.

Back in 1997, the Sentinel marked the opening of the library with a front page headline to celebrate the building of the biggest and best library in Edinburgh for over 100 years.  It also had Edinburgh’s first teenage library, providing access to computers for young people as well as “listening points”.  You can see the front page article in full here.
