Midlothian Libraries have announced that Mayfield and Newtongrange libraries are to close temporarily in March, to enable refurbishment work to be carried out.
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 be closed from Friday 2 March, and will reopen on Monday 12 March. Newtongrange Library will be closed from Friday 9 March, reopening on Monday 19 March.
We are reminding users that they can use any library in Midlothian to return or borrow books. Items borrowed from either Newtongrange or Mayfield libraries prior to the closure will have their loan period extended to ensure that no fines are accumulated during the closure.
Library users are also able to renew their books online 24 hours a day, using the Midlothian Libraries catalogue website:
