Doors Open Days 2020
The feature discusses this rare and important example of modern Scottish architecture. It was designed by John A. W. Grant (1886/7-1959) and was built between 1937 and 1940. It opened as a ‘state-of-the-art’ library during the Blackout and continues to serve the community today.
It is the final celebration of Fountainbridge Libary as part of this year’s on-line Doors Open Days organised by the Cockburn Association. The other activities included a blog taking us back to the Library in 1940 via contemporary photographs of its exterior and interior and a series of eleven short videos taking the viewer ‘behind closed doors’ and ‘up secret stairs’.
Fountainbridge Library will re-open to the public on 6 October 2020.
