Holiday Reading

A week into the school holidays and the weather is proving to be as reliably unreliable as ever, yesterday we were swimming in the sea at Birsay, today we are shivering in a woolly sweater. But whatever the weather we have a book to suit.

If the sun shines we have paperback bestsellers to read lounging on the beach, gardening books to help you pick the perfect plant, and numerous guides to help you enjoy the outdoors. If rain stops play then we have books of indoor activities for all ages, guides to help you decide what to read next, and of course children can take part in our Story Lab reading challenge. We can even lend you a copy of The Met Office Book of the British Weather so you can console yourself with how much worse the weather could be! Visitors can also join the library and take out up to four books at a time, so bad weather is just an opportunity to find out more about Orkney's history or wildlife.

So no matter what the weather has in store for us this summer the library will help everyone have a happy holiday!
