Stockbridge library

Stockbridge public library, built in 1898, is one of Edinburgh's 28 freely accessible libraries,[1] located in the Stockbridge area of the city.

The library is currently open six days a week and, in addition to the collection of books, provides "bookbug" sessions for the under-fives, a knitting club and acts as one of the city's business hubs[2]

As with all of the city's libraries, Stockbridge library uses the Library of Congress Classification system for its adult collection.[3] Since 1974, when Wigan dropped the classification system, Edinburgh is the only area in the UK where public libraries use the US classification scheme. Children's books, and some non-English works, are indexed using the Dewey Decimal Classification scheme.
