Set in the West wing of the Henderson Row site, the Library offers a modern space in an architecturally significant building. Made up of two distinct rooms, it offers a private area ideal for meetings, drinks receptions and intimate dinner events. Gifted by George Crabbie, a former Academy pupil who went on to become a prominent Leith merchant, the Library was built in 1899 and opened shortly afterwards. Though the fabric of the Library has changed through the years, it has always remained true to its original purpose.
