Newington Library is a perfect small branch library – it is well used, it is in a reasonably good building in a nice area of Edinburgh. It has a wide range of stock although all sections are in one big room but that seems to work out ok and leads onto a garden area. When we visited it was Saturday morning and the children’s activities had just finished. There was a good mix of families and people of all ages.
The book stock is the usual selection that you would expect although it was good to see w variety of genres such as graphic novels and audio books.
The service desks are small which leaves more room for books and seating areas.
There are self-service machines although not all items necessarily have a RFID tag!
