New look for Mayfield and Newtongrange libraries

Mayfield and Newtongrange libraries are to close temporarily next month for refurbishment.

New shelving and furniture will be installed at both libraries and their layout will also be redesigned to make it more user-friendly.

Mayfield Library will close from Friday, March 2, and reopen on Monday, March 12. Newtongrange Library will be closed from Friday, March 9, re-opening on Monday, March 19.

Councillor Peter Boyes, Midlothian Council’s cabinet member responsible for libraries, said: “These refurbishment works will help make Mayfield and Newtongrange libraries even more attractive for local users.

“I’d like to thank the local community for their patience while the improvement work is carried out.”
