Heritage Services Exhibitions

We create temporary exhibitions to give our communities access to a variety of aspects of their history and culture. Our temporary exhibition programme runs in the Community Museums at  Armadale Library, Blackridge Library, Broxburn Library and Whitburn Library alongside the permanent displays. We also send travelling exhibitions to libraries and other venues throughout the community.
