Librarians on Loan

It was lovely to meet some of the staff from the Shetland Library this afternoon when they popped into Stromness Library during their visit to Orkney Library and Archive, as part of the Librarians on Loan project supported by Scotland's Islands.

This evening at 7.30pm in the Orkney Library and Archive in Kirkwall, there will be friendly rivalry in the air as the Shetland lasses take on their Orkney counterparts in an Orkney vs. Shetland open-mic poetry night.  Everyone is invited to come along and read their favourite local poems - or just come along and listen! Entry to the event is free and the evening includes music and refreshments, and as an extra incentive to take part, everyone who reads a poem will get a free copy of  Bards in the Bog.
