Does anyone remember this wee Library in Calder Street across from the Miners Welfare?

Built in approx 1953.

Uncle Cyril wrote: I joined the library on the first day it opened, I then borrowed a book from the Children’s Section, read it, and tried to return it on the same-day…
Before the library was built it was an area of humped grassy mounds where we played Cowboys and Indians on the way home from the Dookit’s Saturday matinee…

The Library was replaced by a block of Flats.
