Discovery Week 4th - 10th March 2010

Difficult as it may be to believe, there are some people in Orkney who do not use the Library and Archive... I know!

Don't worry, we've got it under control. the 4th of March is not only World Book Day, but the first day of Orkney Library & Archive's

Discovery Week.

This shall be a week of delights designed both to entice the remaining few who have not been tempted by our vast array of services (books, archives, sound archives, photographs, cds,dvds, reading groups, home library service, sing and sign and bookstart rhymetime sessions, friday cuppas etc) and to give our loyal customers even more to enjoy.

On Thursday the 4th of March, we shall have storytelling evening with Tom Muir.

A library booksale will begin on Friday the 5th.

Allan Guthrie shall host a writing workshop on Saturday the 6th.

Monday the 8th will see the opening ceremony of our wonderful new reference room by MSP Liam MacArthur to be followed by a coffee morning.

On Wednesday the 10th you will not even have to leave the building to get your lunch as soup, bread and crostini will be provided in the MacGillivray room to raise funds for The Haiti Earthquake Appeal.

All through the week there will be quizzes and competitions including the Archive World Traill which will showcase the many countries which are represented in the archives along with 5 Orcadian travellers and explorers (including Thomas Stewart Traill. Do you see what we did there?).

We shall keep you posted with the details of upcoming events here, our website, facebook and our twitter page. We look forward to seeing you then.
