Andrew Purves Memorial Library of Ormiston
The Andrew Purves Memorial Library was named in honour of a long standing local Councillor. The library serves both the community in Ormiston and its surrounding rural neighbours, Humbie, Pencaitland and Salton. It was designed by architects in East Lothian Council’s Property Services Division.
The garden outside the library is landscaped to include a children’s swing park.
Work on Ormiston’s new library started in the springtime of 2000 and was completed in January 2001. The library combines lending services with community based facilities, including a community learning centre and community room. It also contains a suite of online computers, providing internet access for the local inhabitants.
