With a collection numbering 26 million items, the National Library of Scotland is Scotland's largest library, and home to much of the nation's knowledge, history and culture.

Free events and exhibitions take place all year round in our flagship building on George IV Bridge in Edinburgh. In the Visitor Centre is our shop and a fully licensed café offering a selection of sandwiches, cakes and snacks. Facilities include wheelchair lifts, a unisex accessible toilets, and induction hearing loop (staff desks and performance space). There is lift access to the reading rooms for consulting our collections.

The opening of our premises at Kelvin Hall in Glasgow in September 2016 gives visitors a chance to enjoy talks and other free events previously only available in Edinburgh. Our interactive space provides a unique opportunity to explore the extensive digital resources held within our world-class collections, along with the Moving Image Archive, Scotland's national collection of moving image. The space is fully wheelchair accessible, and has assistive technologies and induction loop.
