The Importance of EDGE

The Scottish Government believes it is vital that adequate library services are in place across Scotland. Libraries offer crucial support to help people help themselves – to support literacy, digital participation, learning, employability, health, culture and leisure. They can improve the quality of people’s lives and support them to engage in the democratic process.  We are fully aware of the commitment that local authorities have to maintaining good quality, innovative library services and the City of Edinburgh Council is at the forefront of this, having developed the EDGE conference as an opportunity to share good practice and discuss future developments.

‘To paraphrase the great poet Apollinaire, whose centenary it is this year…

“Come to the edge,” we said.
“We can’t, we’re afraid!” they responded.
“Come to the edge,” we said.
“We can’t, We will fall!” they responded.
“Come to the edge,” we said.
And so they came.
And he pushed them.
And they flew.”
