SAUGHTON PRISION LIBRARY Saughton prison library won a prestigious award for its "life-changing" impact on inmates. The library, which opened at Saughton Prison in November 2008, is the only one in Scotland with a waiting list. Some 12,500 prisoners passed through its doors in the first year and damage to library books has reduced from 80% to zero since it opened. Housed in a purpose-built extension, the library includes designs and fittings that were created and built by prisoners. Images of bright green open spaces – clearly a place prisoners would want to use. This project demonstrates and evidences 'changing lives', and has made a huge impact on all the prisoners and the staff working in the prison.
L4U – youth spaces Libraries in some disadvantaged areas had suffered from an increasing amount of antisocial behaviour involving young people. The staff team, together with a number of key partners, tackled problems head on by adopting an inclusive and ground-breaking approach to working with excluded children and teenagers. From being plagued by disruptive behaviour, under-age drinking and vandalism, they adopted a new inclusive approach, where they engaged more positively with young people. Together with many partners, including Lothian and Borders Police and the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, they delivered a programme of imaginative reading, IT and arts activities such as a Computer Crazies Club, a football literacy project and graffiti arts events. Since then, the trouble in the area has dropped dramatically – a 60% reduction in recorded antisocial incidents in the community and the library has won an award from the Scottish Executive Standing Up To Antisocial Behaviour Scheme The Service now has 6 Libraries 4 Youth projects in the city bringing an entirely new look and feel to those libraries in disadvantaged areas. Designed, furnished and branded by the young people in those communities. Now relaxing, teen friendly and open space is available for young people to pursue their interests through new books, Graphic novels, DVDs, Playstations and Wii games in the modern Libraries4Youth zone. Special male mentoring, DJ workshops and beauty events feature. By making space for young people to read and relax in their own “Teen Zone” there has been an increase in visits and borrowing of library items, improvement in young people’s behaviour and a positive response from the local community.

CONCLUSION There are many diverse communities in the City of Edinburgh and this paper has outlined our approaches to just some of them, all of which are underpinned by our 24/7 virtual library. Tailoring buildings, design and layout in public libraries alongside innovative digital services and new technology has had a clear impact on performance, usage, behaviour and service take up. It has also clearly impacted on sense of community and a sense of investment in those communities. Working with partners and other information and community learning providers to deliver hybrid/ hub spaces has made service provision more affordable and indeed relevant to individual communities. Never has there been a better time to be involved in libraries, especially if you understand that digital developments and new technology are far from a threat. Rather they provide new opportunities for us to re- imagine ourselves, our spaces and to provide innovative new services
Konklusjon Det er mange ulike miljøer i City of Edinburgh og dette papiret har skissert våre tilnærminger til bare noen av dem, som alle understøttet av vår 24/7 virtuelt bibliotek. Skreddersy bygninger, design og layout på offentlige biblioteker sammen med innovative digitale tjenester og ny teknologi har hatt en klar innvirkning på ytelsen, bruk, atferd og service ta opp. Det har også klart påvirket følelse av fellesskap og en følelse av investering i disse samfunnene. Samarbeide med partnere og annen informasjon og samfunnet kurstilbydere å levere hybrid / hub mellomrom har gjort tjenestetilbudet rimeligere og faktisk relevant for enkelte lokalsamfunn. Aldri har det vært et bedre tidspunkt å være involvert i bibliotekene, spesielt hvis du forstår at digitale utvikling og ny teknologi er langt fra en trussel. Snarere gir de nye muligheter for oss å re-forestille oss selv, våre områder og å tilby innovative nye tjenester
