The following article is one of a few we are publishing under the heading 'Tymes Past'. These will mostly be about events or organisations which are no longer in the village. Articles so far in this series are;
Aberlady At War | Aberlady & Gullane Railway | Street Names | Football In Aberlady | Aberlady Bowling Club
Ask anyone in Aberlady - even the 'old timers' - where the village library used to be and it is very doubtful if anyone will be able to tell you. Aberlady did have a library, at the East end of the village. But where exactly was it?
East Lothian Library Service provided much of the information on this page but the only physical evidence they could find for the existence of Aberlady library is a Trail Library label ( see pic. ) which was attached to a book cover ( what the book was they are not sure ).
The old Reading Room is mentioned in the 1891 Census for Aberlady: 48 'House over Reading Room', Main Street occupied by George Brown (40) Sergeant Instructor (1 Rifle volunteers) and his family.
We are greatful to East Lothian Library Service for help with this article.
