Breaking the news with Ciaran Jenkins!

Edinburgh Libraries are proud to be part of the Living Knowledge Network with the British Library and are hosting various events and competitions across the city.

Breaking a news story is the perfect day for any journalist, none more so than Ciaran Jenkins.

Edinburgh School Librarians gave pupils the opportunity to ask prize-winning journalist Ciaran Jenkins (Scottish Correspondent for Channel 4) questions about what it means to cover a story and break the news. Pupils from Broughton High School, Liberton High School and Wester Hailes High School took up the challenge.
