Today sees the official opening of the magnificent Drumbrae Library Hub by Lord Provost George Grubb.
The Hub has been a long time coming - 40 years or so. I am really pleased it has been opened on our watch. Every Lib Dem budget since I was elected to the City council had the Library in it. In spite of being in power for 24 years on the old District and City Councils Labour never proposed this library. ell in the 17 days since it opened 10 000 people have visited it! That is extraordinary!
The team of officers who have put this amazing project together deserve so much praise but so to do the Drum Brae Community led by the admirable Reg Kingman the long serving Community Council Chair and also local councillor Robert Aldridge who both kept the pressure up on the council over many, many, years. Well done all!
I will post some snaps of the event when I can.
