Galloway Book Week events

Join Dumfries and Galloway Libraries during Book Week Scotland (21-27 Nov) for a series of events, activities and giveaways which celebrate how reading exposes us to a world of discovery, exploration and adventure.

The library service is focused on providing the best start in life for our children by creating opportunities in local libraries to inspire primary children to read for pleasure.

Local authors Renita Boyle (Honk Honk Rattle Rattle), Jayne Baldwin (Big Bill Series) and Shalla Gray (The Galloway Chilli) will be hosting a 14 stop roadshow inspiring school and nursery children with stories, songs and rhymes.

The programme also provides new opportunities for adults to engage with books, libraries and writers with events including bestselling crime authors Tony Black and Craig Robertson.

Those who want to spend the week reading will be catered for with our libraries giving away 2000 copies of Secrets and Confessions: a compilation of short stories from the Scottish Book Trust.
