The best Book Week Scotland ever

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’.
