Stacking up the successes - Edinburgh Libraries shortlisted for another national award

Edinburgh City Libraries and Information Service has been shortlisted for the prestigious Library of the Year accolade at the forthcoming The Bookseller Industry Awards ceremony in London.

If Edinburgh wins the award on 14 May, this will be the third national libraries award won by the Capital in the last two years. The City scooped the Scottish Design Awards' Chairman's Award for Design for its innovative Whose Town? software project in May 2011 and the Libraries Change Lives Award from the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals for HMP Edinburgh Library Partnership (Saughton Prison) in July 2010.

Liz McGettigan, Library and Information Manager, said: "We're absolutely over the moon to be on the shortlist for this major award. It's a fantastic tribute to the hard work and dedication of all our Libraries staff and to the continued growing success of the service."
