Thanks to everyone who helped make this the best Book Week Scotland yet.
Aerial performer Rachael Macintyre got things off to a spectacular start as Stockbridge Library unveiled “Under the shy moon” – an artwork created by Rachel Barron in response to Jackie Kay’s poem ‘Dear Library’.
Our sincerest thanks too, to authors Gavin Francis, James Oswald, Russel D McLean, Catriona Child, Doug Johnstone, Ian Stephen and John Fardell who visited libraries across Edinburgh during the week to read from and talk about their work.
What a great view you get from S.Queensferry library and they provided tea and biscuits! What more could a girl want?

Finally, we are so grateful for all the messages and love and support expressed in all the Love Letters to Libraries which we received during the week. Richard Holloway’s incredible love letter to Edinburgh Central Library was even featured in the Sunday Times.We are just as grateful for every other letter that we received during the course of the week, many of which sit proudly on display in libraries throughout the city.
Here’s to next year!
