Contact with the family of former councillor Alex Davidson was made to inform them of the request and the response received on the proposal was extremely positive. A questionnaire was also sent to library stakeholders.

The Council Executive approved the renaming of the library today (22 February).

Lex Davidson passed away in 2020 aged 72. Born and bred in Broxburn he served his community for 25 years as a local councillor and latterly the Broxburn, Uphall and Winchburgh ward.

Leader of West Lothian Council Lawrence Fitzpatrick said: "Lex was a well-respected councillor for a long time. He was born and bred in Broxburn and cared greatly about his local community, which he proudly served.

"I know that it will be a proud occasion for his family and I'm delighted that the library will be renamed in memory of Lex."
