Last Thursday we were gifted this lovely Orkney Writers/Story tellers map which is now hanging in the Junior section of the library.  It was part of a project funded by the Clore Duffield Foundation to introduce young folk in Orkney to Orkney writers of the past. The map was gifted to the library by Wirdsmit and the George Mackay Brown Fellowship and contains lots of lovely illustrations done by the young people, interspersed with pictures of the Orkney writers.

Do come and have a closer look, it's a great addition to the new library.

We are always delighted to see young readers enjoying the junior department at the library.  Florrie was having a bit of trouble deciding which was her favourite book. Jimmy Choo need to watch out when she's older! (Sarah)
