Advent Quiz - Day 1

Can you believe it's that time of year again? 

As we count down the days until 25th December we are also reflecting on the fact that this will be our final Christmas in the old Stromness Library building. 

As a result this year's advent quiz will celebrate all things Stromness Library related, and if you are having trouble with any of the answers then a visit to the library will help. Our exhibition about the history of the library will run all throughout December. 

You can enter by commenting on each day's post (comments will not be published until after the competition ends), closing date for entries is 31st December.

Answers will be published, and the winner announced, when the library re-opens after the holidays, on Monday 5th January 2015.

There will, of course, be a fabulous prize for the person who gets the most correct answers. 

Good Luck!
