EDGE is back!


Our intention is to host EDGE2022

Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th March 2022  Radisson Blu Hotel, Royal Mile, Edinburgh

We are holding our delegate costs  from 2020.

Libraries like the rest of the world have been though some extremely challenging times in the past 18 months.

Public libraries are an essential service for recovery from the pandemic, uniquely equipped to offer human contact and support to the broadest range of people. Libraries are not just partners but core agencies that regularly provide direct services and prevent the escalation of issues such as deprivation and loneliness. – Quote from Libraries Connected, Libraries in the pandemic paper.

At EDGE2022 our aim is to look at where and how libraries can assist in the world’s  recovery from this pandemic.

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.”
