Campbeltown Library is joining in Book Week Scotland’s 10th anniversary celebration by hosting an open morning on Saturday, November 20.

The event is part of a larger programme offered by LiveArgyll across its libraries in Argyll and Bute.

Local literature lovers are invited to pop into Campbeltown Library for a cuppa and a chat during the open day. There will be an opportunity to find out what is going on in your local library, from Bookbug to after school clubs, local studies enquiries, the online library BorrowBox and so much more.

Visitors can also enjoy a game of Jenga or Connect 4 with their friends or take part in the Bookbug treasure hunt and see if they can win themselves a mini Bookbug doll.

The open morning runs from 10am-12.30pm on Saturday November 20, is open to all and is free – just like a library membership.

Book Week Scotland 2021 will include hundreds of online and in-person events. Supported by Creative Scotland and the Scottish Library and Information Council, the week themed around ‘Celebration’ will run from November 15–21.
