Upcoming Changes to Charges and Fines 

Since March 2020, we have not issued any fines or charges and we are happy to announce that we will not be charging fines for overdue loans in the future. Charges for certain services such as reservations and borrowing DVDs will be returning but at a reduced rate. We will also continue to charge for the non-return of items of stock.

John Gray Centre Film Appreciation Club

This March, the John Gray Centre Film Appreciation Club is re-commencing its physical screenings after two years of virtual meetings!

The Club kicks off this year’s Film in Libraries programme with the John Gray Centre 10th Anniversary Film Season. As the Centre first opened to the public in March 2012, a specially curated libraries and heritage themed film programme will be held in the Star Room at the Centre. 

On Saturday March 12th at 10.30 am, the film club will be showing Ex-Libris: The New York Public Library (Frederick Wiseman, 2017; 3hr 25min, Rating 12).

This award winning documentary delves into the inner workings of the New York Public Library, one of the greatest public institutions in New York City with a rich and layered range of community services. This epic three hour film features the formidable events unfolding within the institution as well as the community surrounding it, striving to uphold the values of learning, education and culture in a time when truth and science are under threat.

An annual membership to the film club is a one time £15 donation, which gives free entry to all screenings this year or £3.50 donation per single entry and £2 for East Lothian Council staff.

Please see the poster for all the screenings due to take place in March.
