Edinburgh City Libraries’ Liz McGettigan appeared on BBC Radio Scotland’s Sunday Morning programme yesterday to talk about the remarkable life of Holocaust survivor Ernest Levy and the archive which has been bequeathed to Central Library by his daughter Judith.

A touring exhibition of the project shortlisted for the RIAS Best Building in Scotland Award makes its way to Central Library from 15th June to 14th July.
It’s all go at Central Library right now. We’re getting our self-service machines installed next week, so the lending library will be closed from Monday 20th June to Thursday 23rd June while we get the machines fitted.
All the other Central Library departments will be open as normal so you’ll still be able to return and renew books, collect reservations and so on.

‘Circus Stars’ is our theme for this year’s reading challenge – so there will be lots of clowning about in libraries this summer! Scroll down to see what’s happening at your local library (if it’s not listed give them a call to find out what’s happening, or ask the next time you’re in).
