The sixth annual Book Week Scotland festival is here (27 November – 2 December), and to celebrate Glasgow Libraries is inviting everyone in the city to tuck into a tasty selection of bookish delights.
With the nationwide celebration of books this year based around the theme of Nourish, Glasgow Libraries has a feast of free and ticketed events on offer to whet the appetite of the city’s book fans, and encourage residents and visitors alike to explore what’s inside their local library.
Councillor David McDonald, Chair of Glasgow Life, said: “Book Week Scotland offers the people of Glasgow the chance to head down to their local library and meet authors, other book fans and neighbours. Glasgow is a city of book lovers and I hope that Glaswegians city-wide will take the opportunity to pop into their local library during Book Week Scotland, and experience the joy of reading.”
If you’ve got a competitive streak, Dennistoun Library will be just up your street on Thursday (30 November) as the popular Book Week Scotland Quiz makes a return, complete with tea and cake for everyone, plus prizes for the winners. Entry is free, but pop into the library or call 0141 276 0768 to register your team.
Of course Book Week Scotland wouldn’t be complete without a programme for young book worms too and the youngest Glaswegians will be treated to a day of magic and mischief in four libraries across the city on Saturday (2nd December).
Book Week Scotland is delivered by Scottish Book Trust – the national charity changing lives through reading and writing – in collaboration with library services across Scotland, and supported by Creative Scotland and the Scottish Library and Information Council
