Exciting times

So, like a child bursting to tell you what is in the parcel they've just given you, we are longing to tell you all about the plans for the lovely new Stromness Library. Luckily we will only have to contain our excitement until Tuesday 15th March, when the plans for the Pierhead Regeneration, which includes the new library, will be on public display at the Stromness Townscape Heritage Initiative offices at the Old Academy in Stromness from 6pm-9pm.  Malcolm Fraser Architects will be giving a formal presentation between 6.45pm and 7.45pm, but if you can't make it along to the public meeting and presentation  there will also be a chance to see the plans at the Stromness cash office before the evening meeting.

Having seen the plans we hope you'll be as excited as we are - we won't spoil the surprise but we will let our manager, Gary Amos, tell you a wee bit more:

" A huge amount of thought and effort has been put into the design of the new facility. Additional features such as the George Mackay Brown area of the library will help place the service at the centre of cultural and community life in Stromness."
So make a date in your diary and get along for a look - and do please let us know what you think!
