State-of-art library opens

Have your say

A NEW state-of-the art library opens in the Lothians on ­Monday.

The Lasswade Centre facility will replace Bonnyrigg Library, which closed in June.

It is a combined school and public library – a first for ­Midlothian – and will be home to three self-issue machines allowing books to be borrowed quickly without queueing.

A spokeswoman for Midlothian Council said: “I would urge people to get down to the new library and see all the exciting things which are taking place in the library Service.”
