Saturday 30th November - Winter Storyblanket session at 10.30am in the Carnegie Room

In Stromness we'll be hosting our regular Reading Group meeting on Wednesday 30th November but tomorrow we'll be doing something really special by combining all our favourite things at once - we're going to have a Book Week Tea Party! 

Come along between 3-5pm and join us for tea, coffee and cake! 

There's no charge, but if you would like to make a donation to the Scottish Spina Bifida Association there will be a collecting tin on the table and all donations will be gratefully received. 

So come along to the library and enjoy a cup of tea and something yummy - Carol is bringing her famous meringues so come early to avoid disappointment!  And remember to bring your knitting so you can stay on for Yap and Yarn, which will meet upstairs from 5pm - 7pm. 

Happy Book Week to you all!
