John Gray Centre wins Golden Book Stamp Award
The John Gray Centre has won its first award. The Golden Book Stamp Award was presented to Principal Libraries Officer, Alison Hunter and Local History Librarian at the recent Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIPS) Conference in Dundee by the current President, Peter Reid. The theme of the conference was libraries enriching society.
CILIPS President, Peter Reid praised the building in his visit to East Lothian last week saying, “The building has been renovated fantastically and the glass atrium is juxtaposed beautifully against the original listed buildings. This is co-location of services at its very best and is certainly an exemplar, a model for how to combine library, archives, local studies and museum……absolutely stunning in every respect “
