Colinton Library is a great branch library in Edinburgh about 3 miles from the city centre in a mainly residential area. It is a smallish building with one room as the main library and a small room which is used for computers and community meetings etc.
There is a good stock of standard fiction and non fiction books – not a wide variety of different genres but most of the popular categories are covered.
One of the best things about the library are the displays and posters / notices / information. They are really good and interesting and appealing. The one above which is a Love my Library one sets the tone for a positive vibe in the library. There are other displays including a Crime Fiction one and a Women’s Prize for Fiction one.
There is a children’s section and an information section with maps etc.
