Just months after opening, the National Library of Scotland's new centre at Kelvin Hall in Glasgow has won an innovation award for outstanding library projects.
Organised by Edinburgh City Libraries, the EDGE awards recognise excellence in library-based initiatives across the UK.
The National Library at Kelvin Hall won the award for innovation in the development of physical buildings or spaces. Kelvin Hall shows what libraries can be in the 21st century, through the extensive use of touch screens to view film content and computers to give access to the National Library's vast digital resources.
It also offers visitors a discovery area, with displays on life in Scotland, both past and present. The displays look at Scots at work, at home and having fun down the years.
