We thought you might like to see what the Yap and Yarn group have been working on in preparation for our move to the new Library. 

We decided it would be nice to find a way to make something for the new building which reminded us of the old library, and came up with the idea of cushions for our lovely new comfy sofas. 

As you can see, the design is based on the coloured glass windows in the old library.

We decided to make 6 cushions and here we are working on the final one!

Bookmarks and Bags

We were overwhelmed by the entries to our competitions to design a bookmark for the new Stromness Library and a new children's library bag. The quality of the entries gave our judges a very difficult decision to make but we are delighted to be able to announce the winners.

Congratulations to Erin Rose Bayliss and Magnus Groundwater, joint winners of the bookmark competition. 

Congratulations also to Lucy Barton whose winning entry will be the new design on our children's library bags.

Thank you to everyone who entered. We can't wait to see the winning designs as bookmarks and bags.
